> the `separator` argument now allows multi-character strings, so you can parse 'a=1<SPLIT>b=2' with separator='<SPLIT>'. Was this intentional?

No, this was not intentional. The separator arg was just coice, for  compatibility, if some wanted to use `;` like the some URLs that were shared as use case. We didn't restrict about what was allowed or length of the separator.
