"Feedfoward compensation" is a means of "artificially" increasing the
slew rate of a stage via differentiation. It's basically positive
feedback, and it creates instabilities which MUST be compensated for
via negative feedback. Once upon a time this was pretty widespread in
vacuum tube circuits, but it's rarely even used there anymore.
