I'm still baffled. Why wouldn't any designer just work out biasing
arrangements with suitable resistors to derive 1mA Ie from the power
supply? You don't see current sources shown in practical designs for
any oscillator so I don't see how using one in a simulation is going
to make practical development any easier.
