You can halfass things or do things the right way.....
I call this stuff "nannyware". Same with seatbelt/starter interlocks and any number of other things designed to dumb things down so that we don't have to pay attention.
I left the clutch switch off of mine when I converted it. But then I learned to drive on a manual car that didn't have the switch. I just push in the clutch or take it out of gear, as you're supposed to do, anyway.
Do I recommend that it be done this way? Not really. But I don't call it "half assed" either. It's a choice.

I always uplugged and connected the wires together on my sticks. I have enough brains to know either start in neutral or push the clutch in. I usually always disconnect all the chick stuff myself. Auto door locks, clutch interlock, auto tran interlock, ABS, all dinger and ringers and buzzers I can find. They DONT have ones you SHOULD have like a chime or buzzer when you overheat or lose oil pressure.

A little off topic, but I had a Trail Blazer that got road debris on the ABS sensor. Suddenly a routine stop at a stop sign on a 25mph road became a life or death situation. I've never had a vehicle with 'power breaks' or whatever it was called in the 60's, but this is the first time I've ever had to STAND on the breaks. Stupid break pedal was kicking back on a warm summer day.
A pull of the fuse later stopped that madness. What an un-necessary hazard (imo), & I've never trusted ABS since.
