Am I destroying my clutch?

Is it bad to keep my clutch pedal pushed all the way in as I brake for stop signs and turns? Should I instead shift to neutral, let the pedal out, and then shift back into gear when I need it?

I seem to remember this being discussed on Car Talk a while back, and their objection was something about not having full control of the car when you do this, but that doesn't really make sense to me. I think they were talking more about engine braking vs. pedal braking on hills and such.
