Looks fairly good, except for one possible problem: The verb "enter"
often means "type this, and then press the Enter key". (For instance,
"open up a terminal/shell and enter this command".) Is that likely to
be a point of confusion?

It's plenty plausible either way. I like the multiple-keystrokes version:

and the split API does make good sense.
