There are problems on Windows (surprise?).

This approach looks appealing to me after just having set up Foundation with the whole Grunt shebang.

The idea is that you face the same learning overhead with the configs of a build tool as with the options of a specific command line utility, so why not use the command line utils via npm? Build tools like Grunt or Gulp also bring other types of complexity to your workflow, especially as time goes on and backwards compatibility breaks somewhere in your toolbox.
