Yay! :)

It's definitely something which was planned for a long time:
https://github.com/qutebrowser/qutebrowser/issues/27

I'm planning to finally make it happen - together with some bigger
changes on how configuration works (see [1]) - in my summer holidays,
and will launch qutebrowser's second crowdfunding for that soon (so I
can work full-time on the whole config stuff and more for a month).

Once it's up, I'll of course announce it on this list (you're not
subscribed yet, by the way) as well as the qutebrowser-announce list.

You can already do that (with a simple keybinding using ;; as command
separator), but it'll disable/enable javascript for all open pages.
