Comment (by DJPaul):

 Run equivalent tasks from `grunt commit` for each of the watch categories
 when a file changes.


 * When `watch js`, making an invalid change to buddypress.js (removing a
 semi-colon, etc), is not caught. For jsvalidate and jshint, it says "0
 files are valid" which I take to mean it has checked 0 files, because the
 output is not a warning.
 * `grunt watch` gets caught in some kind of runaway loop.
 * `grunt watch:all` copies the intention from WordPress, which is to copy
 those files into the build folder. BP doesn't want that.
 * `grunt watch:styles` needs to run on all changed SASS in the bp-legacy
 (but not .CSS), and needs to run on .CSS everywhere else. It also needs
 all the tasks added to it: scsslint, sass, cssjanus.  (same as from the
 `src` task)
 * This is a proper PITA to work on.
