Do CSS pre-processors make it difficult to work on a clients site that you haven't developed.

If another designer has developed a site and used a CSS pre-processor and output in a compressed style and you have to work on that site without the Sass files for instance how would you do it as the CSS is mashed up.

If you do not have access to the SASS files and just the compressed CSS file, you can always unminify it by using a tool like this.

Thanks for your reply Alviar,

So if you come across a site in the wild so to speak developed by someone else using Sass who has not given the client the Sass files but has compressed the css output how would you make sense of that css output to work on this clients website?
