WordPress w/ sass

I had a question for Zac Gordon . When I start working with WordPress more and creating Themes would I be able use Sass to create or edit those styles sheets. Because I notice when using WordPress themes they seems to already have a bunch of different css sheets, and when I was taking my Sass courses the instructor was saying its better to only have one style sheet when uploading to the Web instead of multiple style sheets. Just create multiple sass sheets and link them to one css sheet. But this doesn't seem to be the case with using WordPress.

So I was wondering what is the best practice when working with WordPress. I was just accepted into an internship program with a company who will be using WordPress and I was just trying to figure out what is the best course of action when using WordPress.

Hey Ceasar!

I like the idea of building your themes with SASS and maybe shipping with as a premium feature for other developers. So themes or frameworks may come with this option, but it's not common.

In terms of compiling, I refer to James Barnett recommendation on CSS Tricks :)
