water pump gasket?

I'm about to replace my water pump and I'm curious if people here use gasket sealer on the water pump gaskets or if they just put a nice clean gasket on.

I've always kind of figured that if the surfaces are clean and shiny just use the gasket and if there's any imperfections smear some permatex on the gasket.

Am I thinking along the right lines?

Thats pretty much what I do. Emphasis here on a THIN layer of gasket sealer.
