The output stage of the LT3042 also operates with unity gain so the
reference noise is not multiplied by the gain set by the divider and
bandwidth of the error amplifier is maximized.  Some regulators
include an extra pin or the voltage divider is external so that point
can be bypassed but their reference is still in series with the error
amplifier so this does not suppress noise from the bandgap reference
