I believe "client_split" would be better english rather than 
"user_split"; when seeing "user" one would think of a system user, 
whereas "client" is preferrable as something which connects to a system 
(in this case a webserver).

"split_clients" would be even better - this dictates the block's 
*intention* rather than what it "is", which would to mind easier when 
writing the block. Other things could be "split_" also, in future 
modules: "split_backends" for example.
