I'm looking at the schematic for the MC1460 voltage regulator. At the top it has three current mirrors, each with an NPN-PNP pair. Is there a name for that transistor structure? These pairs look like Sziklai pairs except there is an emitter-base connection rather than an emitter-collector connection, and four connections in total. I've experimented with the circuit in LTspice, but I'm not sure
