Clutch delay valve purpose? (archive)

I was told that this valve is placed on the car for the purpose of prohibiting unintentional stall outs. The clutch on my car literaly grips at the very top of its travel range. With the engine as quiet as it is it is easy at times to unintentionally stall the car out b/c you just don't know where the rpms are. The delay allows for a little leeway in that if you let the clutch out and take it to stall point you can quickly press it back in so that the car won't stall.
Is this true?
Also this site is great for info on clutches and how to use yours.
