   Did someone say nay to this combo?  I'd imagine that they'd be quite 
good enough.
   For a minute I thought you were talking about 78L15/79L15s, which are 
TO92 cased regulators which were used on the likes of OB-X's.  These guys 
can only give 100mA out and were used to regulate +/-18V down to +/-15V 
on each voice board.  Quite a nice design feature, if you ask me.
