[sdiy] Best way to get a +3.3V rail from +15V?

I'm wondering about using another regulator between +15 and +3.3.  Maybe a +8v.  I would think
that the heat dissapation should be less for the +3.3 regulator.  Some heat might also be expected
on the +8v reg.  It's either that or a power resistor as previously mentioned.
