Nah its not that bad, we had one come in from the body shop that they couldnt get a firm pedal in after a slight fender bender. They replaced the master twice and the booster before they brought it to us. We tried to bleed normally, then tried to bleed it with our power flush machine just to be sure there was no air. After that we did the abs bleed which as simple as selecting it from the functional test menu on our scan tool, keeping your foot on the brake pedal while it does its thing and after about a minute its done without the need to open bleeders or anything. Obviously though if you have no friends with access to a good scanner you will have to pay someone if it comes to that however I doubt you'll have any issues.
