On this site I've seen the note that on some cars it is a good idea to replace the slave cylinder when the clutch is replaced in order to save costs over having it done later. Is this necessary on my car? I received one quote in which the slave cylinder was included without my having asked for it to be.

Not unless it is defective. It is external and can be replaced at any time after the clutch job. Your mechanic will know if it needs it or not.
