[time-nuts] Low noise powersupplies

Just practical question..

How would one measure noise at this level?  If I were evaluate this what
would I need?  My scope lacks a nV/dev setting so is there some way to tell
the difference between this and an LM317?  Seriously, what kind of
instrumentation would I need before I could measure an improvement over my
"standard" LM317
