I missed something here, David.  Are you saying that split-phase is illegal
in some places?  Or is it linking two single-pole breakers (which after all
is what is inside a double pole breaker) that is not allowed?

There's someone selling them on flea-bay for $70-$80.  Eg, item
220442509069.  In fact I should probably pick one up for my pool pump.
