Seems to me that, like the relays which switch secondaries, at certain
voltage points you could change the SMPS's feedback resistor ratio
to minimise the voltage drop across the following linear section (if you
have one)

How would you effect adjustable current-limiting in a simple SMPS ?

Sean, a modem I use specifies a very low noise tolerance so I looked
at SMPS ripple output. AFAICT it was pretty low, under mV at least,
and I didn't take any special precautions to remove it. A schematic
straight out of the datasheet actually. A filter (cap and small series
inductor) is a common 'dashed line' option in many d/s schematics
