Currently, setting maxsplit for the default "any whitespace" behaviour requires the following cryptic incantation:

    'do re mi fa'.split(None, 1)

That would be significantly more comprehensible as:

    'do re mi fa'.split(maxsplit=1)

(I noticed this when trying to figure out why resorted to using the re module to achieve this)
