Just don't abuse it. Same with the brakes. Clutch (and brakes) break-in period is much shorter than the engine's, but since both go hand in hand, I'd just wait until your 1.2K-mile service before adding heavy throttle. I never abused my clutches, regardless of miles, but some folks like jack-rabbit starts. Much better to lay the gas after clutch is engaged, but that's just me. That way you'd never have to worry about replacing a clutch. Oh, and that assumes you don't 'ride' the clutch, leave it depressed on traffic lights, slip it excessively, etc. I only touch the pedal (and the gear lever) to shift gears. Take care.
