Comment (by iandunn):

 Thanks for testing!

 My most common use case w/ Gutenberg is reproducing a potential bug on a
 fresh WP install. Testing a PR against WP could be another common one.

 IIRC, the reason running both tasks is sometimes needed, is because WP is
 often served from the `build/` dir. So,

 1. Dev changes a file in Gutenberg `src/wp-
 1. Gutenberg's `dev` task builds the changes into Gutenberg's `build/`
 1. Core's `watch` task copies `src/wp-content/plugins` to `build/wp-
 1. Nginx serves Gutenberg from `build/wp-content/plugins/gutenberg/build`

 If Core's task weren't also running, then it seems like refreshing would
 get the older version of Gutenberg.
