When a Grunt or Gulp is running through the task runner before a build and the task is being failed (for example when running jshint) it should be possible to fail the entire build or at least have a warning.

    I would like to have better integration between the task runner output and the error pane in Visual Studio. Currently I have to inspect the gulp window to see any build errors.
