 Currently, in order to run the build step for WordPress core files, Grunt
 must be installed globally. This requirement can be removed by making use
 of [https://docs.npmjs.com/misc/scripts npm scripts] to run
 `grunt build` as npm scripts [https://docs.npmjs.com/misc/scripts#path
 adds executables to the PATH]. In addition to not requiring Grunt to be
 installed globally, this has the added benefit of ensuring the version of
 Grunt run is consistent as the version in `node_modules` is managed with
 npm whereas users likely have a different version installed globally.
