Split infinitives are like split ends: no matter what the ads say, nothing repairs them. All you can do is cut them off.
In many languages, the infinitive form is a single word, so asplit it is unable to be.

(Do you know why I love reptiles? It's because they don't play guitars.)
How about a split and stuffed infinitive, what is what any appetizing infinitive wants to really and truly, without any silly non-fat or low-carbohydrate nonsense, be?
