Exclude scripts from Delay JavaScript Execution only at some URLs

This helper will allow you to exclude JavaScript files from Delay JavaScript Execution option only on specific pages instead of excluding them globally.

This can be useful in some cases where you can delay JavaScript files globally, but you need to exclude some scripts from being delayed only on some pages.

For example, when you have a slideshow on 2 or 3 pages, a modal on one page, etc.
