Car keyed - advice

Well this just sucks - my car got keyed last night while I was at work. Here's my question: fortunately, the keying seems to have only gone through the clearcoat. There is only about 1/2 inch that it went down to metal (out of 3 feet of keying the left side of car). I washed the car today, and noticed I got the "crud" out of the tiny etch that was left when the bastard keyed my car. Is there a clearcoat polish that you can recommend to take the edge off the damage? Like I said, it was a very light key job (thank goodness). I've read about Zaino, etc. Should I have it buffed out? It's almost invisible, but of course it's HUGE to me.

see if you have a "chipsaway" franchise in your area. they have chemicals that can blend in paints into small blemishes very effectively (chips, gouges etc). there is a DIY version that i have seen ads for at benzsport but the name escapes me. both fixes cost under $100.
