Split() takes a regex as the first argument. The pipe character ("|") is a
special character in regex, so it needs to be escaped if you intend to use
it as a string literal.
But, as noted in the docs
<http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.split.php>: "...if you don't require
the power of regular expressions, it is faster to use explode(), which
doesn't incur the overhead of the regular expression engine."
