How many people have actually built an oven to do this? I know about using
multi-transistor ICs, using 2 for expo conversion and the other 2 for a
heater/regulator circuit.  Since the charging capacitor will also change
along with the temperature, wouldn't it be better (though harder) to build
an oven and stick the expo converter and the charging cap (at a minimum)
into it?  Or is this too much work for too little gain?
Has anyone else thought of this or better yet attempted it?

Just curious.
