would there be any purpose in putting a thin film of the exhaust grade "patch" putty on both sides and then bolting up so you get more of a "squishy" gasket that might better seal between the manifold and the head?

This is one reason why I am going with ARP bolts, there appear to be quite a few of these threads over the last few months.
