Oh, sorry -- I didn't make it clear: the re that I was using above is mostly
made up from the 0.025/Ic (at room temperature.) This isn't a physical (or
parasitic) resistor, but is of the dynamic sort. There is some physical resistance,
but that shouldn't be much of an issue at currents that are used for low noise.

You certainly want a low physical RE (as a parasitic or contact resistance),
but the re value is predominantly the dynamic resistance.
