With a small enough engine, short enough transition time, big enough clutch, or low enough traction, modulating the clutch can certainly work. It can also easily tear a standard clutch up.

Of course pushing into the throttle works the same way, and doesn't convert excess horsepower to heat at the friction surfaces.
