You may make it as a lawyer, but not as an engineer - constant current
diodes are not all that stable against changes in temperature and

Ah. You meant *select* approximately matched constant current diodes.
Maybe you wouldn't make it as a lawyer either.
Embedding a single constant current diode in a diode bridge still
strikes me as a better solution than "matching", however you do it,
not that the constant current diode is much of a solution in the first

I aim to please.
