%Split is documented as ignoring consecutive delimiters. I wish it wasn't so but that is by design apparently.

Only way to make it work is to pre-process the string to insert a non-delimiter character between them.

Well I guess there are other ways as well but ...

The manual even includes an example of how to handle that use case at
the end of the entry for %SPLIT.

In short, preprocess with %SCANRPL and postprocess with %TRIM.

It's not as nice as having the option to handle it all with %SPLIT,
but it's not really that painful either, especially compared to what
we had to do before %SPLIT.
