I remember that, but if you wanted more bits either way than the number of
bits the chip was set up for their app info had you cascading some absurd
number of them.
And then there's Motorola's MC14489, directly drives 5 7-seg LED displays
(and/or discrete LEDs &c), cascadable, hexadecimal decoding (among others) etc.
Serial input, only 1 resistor required to limit current.
