Allow radgrid bulk update column widths
I have a RadGrid with around 150 columns and a few hundred rows. Currently, I'm looping over them and setting their widths with the resizeColumn function. Unfortunately, it's triggering a recalculation of the layout every time I call this function, so the total page load time can be in the minutes.

Oddly, much of the time was spent on the line:
e.style.width=e.offsetWidth-d+"px";

Chrome's developer tools helpfully pointed me at Forced Reflow. Apparently, when a width is set, initially no extra work is done. When another width is requested, the previous width may have changed it, so the whole layout gets recalculated.

The feature I'd like to request is a function to set column widths in bulk (accepting anything like an array or a dictionary would be fine) that doesn't trigger this recalculation mid-function.
