Aww, nuts, time to reboot. Now I mucked everything up here.
Forget the last couple of messages.
Looking again, there are 4 "separate" drivers in each L293
chip that you can wire up in different ways. Each driver
output has both PNP pullup and NPN pulldown. So it only
takes 2 drivers to form one H-bridge. And obviously you
can control a 5-wire stepper with a single chip in a
straightforward manner. No funny games. Sorry.
