Sorry, folks, I meant to say the TLV431, which controls its HI pin:

Yeah I'm still working on that and making no progress.

Easy. :>)

Use the LM385 here (it controls its LO pin), with a p-type mosfet.

Bummer! Guess what : I've just discovered I've always assumed the 385-adj
controled its top pin like the 431, and never bothered to check the DS, just

Still I win on transistor count and yours is vastly over engineered

Now that I do like.

I read in sci.electronics.design that Winfield Hill

Do these arrangements produce a predictable source resistance or is it
just 'very, very high'?

These source resistances are very, very, very, very very, very high.

Even the simple one with a single transistor is over 1G.

You still can render them predictable with and additional resistor

But I thought it was a transient response contest!
