The idea with *output* crowbar is to protect when the switcher go bananas (control cirquit/switch, etc)
Can´t normally make hundreds of amps, if it did, then just arrange the tracks intelligently and it pulls down correctly anyway.
For using fets, the turn on is not well enough defined, and also too soft/high resistance.
