Actually this is the best way to do it. From base to emitter there's a
diode junction(0.6 volt) and as long as you have current flowing through
it, the transistor will conduct collector-emitter.

Look at the lead-in page to the schematic, I've shown the internal
schematic of the darlington transistors I used. They have built-in
pinch-off resistors and also collector-emitter diodes, saves external parts.
