note that the string.split function has been "outdated" since Python
1.6 (released in 2000), and despite what the documentation implies,
it won't go away before 3.0.

there's no reason not to use it in 2.3, but if you have lots of old code
using the old syntax, there's no reason to change that just because you
want to upgrade to a newer Python release...
