Using the bower package and its gulp "custom" task to build a custom distribution, if I include the grid widget, it doesn't seem to automatically include the "filtercell" widget, so grids with filtering will throw an error due to the missing code.  The Grid source defines a bunch of dependencies including "kendo.filtermenu", "kendo.excel", etc.  Shouldn't "kendo.filtercell" be a dependency as well, or is there some reason it has to be included separately?

Someone brought this up a year or two ago, but over in the Issues area of Core on github, but it was closed as a Pro problem.  I don't know if it was ever raised here.  I can include filtercell in the argument list to "gulp custom" if necessary, but I was just curious.

Hello,

Note that gulp custom does not include optional features (the one that are not needed the component to run). As you mentioned they should be included separately.

But the question is why filtercell is an optional feature while 'kendo.pdf', "kendo.excel" etc. are inclusions?  Perhaps I'm wrong, but I didn't think the grid would fail to run without those (unless one turned on PDF or Excel capabilities)?  I've seen a number of reminders that the gulp/custom builder does NOT allow leaving out subcomponents of things like Grid, unlike the download builder.

I see that "filtercell" has its own requirements (widgets like "autocomplete" and "datepicker"), and perhaps it would be undesirable to have these as direct requirements of Grid, so that "filtercell" is a different type of "optional" from the others?  But anyone converting from kendo.all to building kendo.custom would only discover this by trial and error.
