[sdiy] Best Op-Amps / oscillation

A TL07x or LM741, even one made today, has internal frequency compensation,
which will limit its bandwith to reduce the risk of oscillation. Assuming
the device is made to spec, it's part of the "contract" that a new part
will behave identically in this regard, despite being made with a newer
process. Of course, all bets are off if you're using a different opamp
that's not sold as a TL074.
