Renbotics ServoShield

Vendor's Description: 

The Renbotics Servo Shield is an Arduino-compatible shield that uses two 4017 decade counters to drive up to 16 servos using only 4 pins (digital pins 6 to 9) and as little as one 8bit timer (Timer 2) in standard mode or two 16/8bit timers (Timer 1 and Timer 2 for Duemilanove or Timer 3 for Mega) in high accuracy mode. It also includes a 196 point breadboard style prototyping area.

I thought it was a really cool shield too especially cause it's so simple and the 4017 chips only costs 0.23$ each, so I was planning to buy a bucketfull and make a SUPERVERSION of the shield...

BUT then I read THIS...
