Unfortunately the switch to fastchardet did not fix the spurious warnings about the encoding, in fact. Warnings are still raised for a lot of files that are correctly utf-8 encoded. See the attached XPI: There should be no charset errors at all, as all locale/*/*.* files are utf-8. I verified this using the attached python script.
The warnings are nasty, as they can really confuse add-on authors. They sure confused me when I first encountered them. I tested against amo-validator master, of course.

I should note for Kumar that `pip install -r requirements.txt` needs to be run to install fastchardet. Otherwise bad things will happen.
