Split Tool Python Add-in

I am looking to write out a python tool that mimics the editor bar split tool button. Does anyone have a sample of the split tool for me to manipulate to add in the addtional field calcs. 

We are trying to get around a esri "bug" where if you have a 1 to many relationship and preform a split it drops the foreign key from the feature. My goal is to preform the split and have both new feature retain the foreign/parent key relationship values. I think you are able to change this within a class extension but i would rather deploy a toolbar then an application for this specific editing scenario.  


1 line feature class, 1 to many relationship class, 1 table

- many line features to 1 record in the table

I am looking to utilize the onMouseUp command as an input to the split feature at point for a selected line. 

Here is my thought you select a line, click the "split", the new tool pops up, click a point on the, and the line splits and field calcs the foreign keys back over.
