Why does it need to be split?  A shell command can (even should) be
handed to the shell as a single string.
Currently it's not a shell command, because a shell isn't being used.
My other suggestion was to use a shell:

It might be more intuitive to actually use a shell and then the user
would enter a shell command (though inserting a shell into things
might bring more complications).
If it doesn't use a shell, then it has no business quoting commands or
their parts using shell-related APIs.

So yes, I think using a shell would be TRT here.  Can someone please
work on a patch in that direction?  This problem exists for a long
time, so I hope we could solve it soon.

Executing Python code via a shell might produce subtle bugs. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/python-mode/+bug/550661

Following the OP's suggestion seems reasonable. Just drop it at place and see if something gets broken - wouldn't expect it.
