I didn't want to downgrade jQuery on ALL admin paths just because I had one that I knew needed the downgrade.

So here is my proposed solution:

  1. Add another select beneath the "Alternate jQuery version for administrative pages" select, I call it "Alternate jQuery version for specific paths"
  2. If you select any jQuery version other than "Default", a textarea appears where you can specify path patterns where you want the selected jQuery version to be used

That is what this patch does. It uses the core function drupal_match_paths to match the patterns.

One thing that I like with this solution is that this is very declarative and straightforward regarding which paths this version will be used on.

I made it so that this very specific choice has the last word and overrides any other jQuery version choice made by the jQuery update module.

Did try your patch but it seems that 'Default jQuery Version' value does override the 'Alternate jQuery version for specific paths' value.

For example with these settings:
Default jQuery Version: 1.8
Alternate jQuery version for administrative pages: Default (provided by Drupal)
Alternate jQuery version for specific paths value: Default (provided by Drupal)
jQuery and jQuery UI CDN: jQuery

But paths 'node/*/edit' and 'node/add/*' still use default jQuery version 1.8.
