Well - actually it is possible.
I wil try to break it down to a simple example.

optionSplit uses 3 major parts, first, middle and last that can be split up
into minor parts.
According to the rules in TSref some parts are repeated, some rotated and
there is the priority last, first, middle

You will need just three different wraps (called A, B and C, with B being
the closing wrap for each row and C being the last one) within the
optionSplit and a starting "wrap" outside i.e. in the HMENU.wrap

|*| A || A || A || B |*| C

As you can see the first part (before the |*|) is empty, the middle part and
the last part are equal.
Last comes before middle, so up to 4 entries B should not be used at all.
In any case that is higher than 4 you will get the rotated middle values and
the last value at the end.
This should give you


and so on.

I guess this should solve your problem by replacing A, B and C with the
complete code for a single wrap: wrap|wrap
