I'd agree that the existance of a torque convertor mitigates the real need for rev matching, but the fact remains that when you are traveling at 50 mPH in high gear (drive) your engine RPM is low. When you engage a lower gear, your engine RPM goes up, whether auto or manual. The torque convertor softens that blow, but I though it might have been fun to have the built in throttle blip, ala SMG (I know it's a manual at heart).

Oh well.....what the h***, gonna be treat when I get it either way.
