Question Slipper Clutch for the F800GS?

You MX types out their I have a question for you regarding the possibility that a slipper clutch might help on the F800GS? My objective would be to improve low speed tractability or getting caught in to high a gear etc. My understanding (I have never ridden a bike with a slipper clutch) would be that below a set RPM the clutch would slip rather than just kill the engine.

I have been caught out three times now having the engine stall (yes operator error) and each time it has been at the most in opportune time of course.

Any info or opinions from those with experience riding with a slipper clutch would be most appreciated.
