I don't think that is a big deal, but no harm in just fixing everything 
at once...

Clutch, pressure plate, release bearing.  Tranny input seal.  Clutch 
slave cylinder.  There's a gasket under the plate that the rear main 
seal sits in.  Tranny fluid.  Downpipe gasket & nuts, since you probably 
have to pull it to get the tranny off.
