Toyota just puts a override button on the dash to allow this. If you want to start, in gear, without pressing the clutch, just press the button.

A former girlfriend had an E30 BMW that lacked a starter lock out. I was in the habit of turning over the key and stepping on the clutch to start my own car. I took hers to the store one day and came about 4 inches from sending it through the front door of an Autozone thanks to that.

My understanding is that they stopped importing them due to the lack of a neutral safety switch. I know a few LR techs who have crushed, or come close to crushing, their tool boxes with manual Land Rovers.
My 96 failed VA inspection for this...it was my own fault for getting in from a flight and figuring that she would be good since she'd sat for a few months but by and large was the same as when I put her into the barn.

I go to a local Shell; tech fails it and says it has to have one. I point out it has never had one, what am I supposed to do. 'Call Land Rover'

Starter lock out with manual gearbox. I wouldn't have known about its existence if I did not read Dweb. Driving manual all my life
