trans input shaft lube?

have got my trans out (T177) for rebuild. Am also changing out the throwout bearing and pilot busing. I've read on these forums that the trans input shaft should be lightly lubricated. Was wondering if anyone has used a dry lubricant like slip plate. Seems it wouldn't have a tendency to collect debris as much as a grease would. What do you guys think??

My clutch kit came with a very small amount of lube for this purpose. I used what came with the kit.

I used a light grease. Which is what my automotive technology text book said to use. You don't want to use too much because it will sling onto the clutch disc and that's not good. I also heard that you can use antiseize and I think the reasoning behind that is that it will not sling off. But like I said I stuck by the book.
