Really useful and informative. Well done! As well as the various methods of temp compensation you give one method of temp control: the heater. What do you think about other forms of temp control: gluing everything onto big heat sinks, or adding a thermostat and peltier device ($11)? (Early ARP expo converters had some simple copper heat bands to sink heat from the expo pair, but i expect they amplify the effects of drafts, rather than stabilize.) If common cheap methods of expo control dont work well at extreme temperature, couldn't they still be combined with rough temperature control to keep the hardware cto within its sweet range?
