If I am in traffic, I'll glide with the clutch in to time the greens. Out in the middle of nowhere when I'm coasting to stop signs, I'll stay in neutral and give my clutch foot a rest.

I've gone almost 60k miles on this JDM engine. I'm sure my throw-out bearing will wear out one day, but it hasn't yet. I can see being in stop and go NYC traffic you'd probably wear out a lot of stuff. Longer commutes and very little shifting? - well, that is a judgment call.
