ideas still brewing

today i did a pretty rough idea of what i think the ideal arduino mega shield may be like. it is still pretty rough but here it is.

but one of the things that i think is a good idea is to put all the stepper drivers close together so that a person could put one larger heat sink on them.  i also want to add a little prototyping area in the middle so that people can ad stuff that they would like, for example a lcd screen and more buttons. 

but i would like to be able to modify the stepper from full to half but i am not sure what would be the best way to do that, i would like to do it with the arduino but that would use allot more digital I/O's  so any ideas on that would be welcome

this is the start of what i would call a no compromise shield. i would like to be able to off load the temp monitoring onto a slave processor in time. but i think that is another discussion for another day.
