Grid: Add column id property
It would be nice to be able to assign a unique ID to each column to go along with the column's title. Makes it easier to find a column by it's ID instead of trying to find it by title. Especially if the user has reordered the columns.

Hi Mathew,

Each column header in the Grid has an uid that can identify a header cell. In addition the data-field attribute can also be used to get reference of a specific column based on the field it is bound to. 

Alternatively you can include a custom CSS class to the columns that can be used to identify them:

columns.Bound(e => e.Title).HtmlAttributes(new { @class = "test" });
The "test" CSS class will e applied to each table cell element in the respective column.
