Using SASS in your next CakePHP project

When I first saw some examples I thought the idea was good, but didn’t see the point of learning a new syntax in order to not having to use the CSS syntax. Because, honestly, how does typing some curly brackets and semicolons hurt? I did like the idea of inheretance by indentation though. By indenting subsequent selectors it saves a lot of repetitive class assigning and declarations. But I hate adding extra layers onto things.
