Yeah, throw some Stans (or equivalent) in your tire. If you get a puncture in the tread it will usually seal it completely. If you puncture the sidewall it's less effective but does still work pretty well.

As for running tubes in a tubeless setup, I've done it. I went down once and rolled the tire off the rim. I couldn't get it to reseat very well so it kept leaking during the ride. I just pulled the tire off one side, slipped a tube in, and finished my ride. Once you get back home you can pull the tube out, fix the problem, put some sealant in, and reinflate. Voila, tubeless again.
