[theme-reviewers] Fwd: Escaping JS

If it's intended to be allowed to output code, then there's really no
escaping to be done on it.

I'd say that for security reasons, you would probably want to make sure the
user has the edit_themes capability to be allowed to edit that field. You
could do this by adding 'capability' => 'edit_themes' to the add_setting

But you wouldn't escape the output since that would negate the code.
Escaping is for preventing that sort of thing, not for allowing it.
