Having flunked a grad-level grammar course because I hadn't yet quite 
assimilated the "switchover" from traditional grammar to 
"transformational" (ie, "write the rules as you go along, and change 
them willy-nilly") grammar, I can assure everyone that the infinitive 
can now be split without recrimination.  In fact, don't just split it; 
jump on it, crush it under foot, humiliate it in public, make it write 
bad checks, etc,
