Grid

610 - Monochrome font outline

## What version of Grid are you using? (example: 3.2.2.932)
4.3.4.1485-beta

## What version and locale (language and region) of WoW are you using? (example: 3.2.2 enUS)
4.3.4.15595 enUS

## If there is any other information you think may be relevant, please include it here.

It would be nice if "OUTLINEMONOCHROME" was added to the list of outline options for those of us that prefer using pixel fonts for Grid. I manually add it to GridFrame.lua every time I update, but others might find it useful as well.

    The problem with adding this is that MONOCHROME outlines are hideously ugly with non-pixel fonts. Since most users don't use a pixel font, I fear this would lead to more bug reports with clueless users going "wtf y this look so bad iz brokin halp plz fix".

    You could do this from an external addon without modifying any Grid files:

    local function DoIt()
    	if Grid and Grid.options and Grid.options.args.GridFrame then
    		Grid.options.args.GridFrame.args.text.args.outline.values["MONOCHROME"] = "Monochrome"
    		return true
    	end
    end
    
    if not DoIt() then
    	local f = CreateFrame("Frame")
    	f:RegisterEvent("ADDON_LOADED")
    	f:SetScript("OnEvent", function()
    		if DoIt() then
    			DoIt = nil
    			f:UnregisterAllEvents()
    			f:SetScript("OnEvent", nil)
    			f = nil
    		end
    	end)
    end
