Herein lies the problem.
Most so-called "ergonomic" keyboards out there are little better than a scam. It really doesn't matter if the keyboard has a curve in it, or even if they put a bump in it, because, as you have alluded to, what is ergonomic for one person isn't always for the next. So what you need are some fully height, angle and width adjustable keyboards, such as the uTron or IBM Model M15 -
Of course, such keyboards are expensive, and the ignorant masses are happy with the illusion of ergonomic design as opposed to spending money on the real deal, so these faded into obscurity for the most part. On the flipside, I hear the Ministry of Pointlessly Silly Keyboard Shapes within Microsoft and Logitech are making a killing.
As far as I know, research conducted since the ergonomic keyboard craze of the early 90s suggests that split keyboard designs are less important than things like seating position, height of the keyboard etc.
