New Order: to split or not to split, that is the question

You may not know this, but New Order are my favourite band of all time.

So I'm a bit perplexed by the-split-that-isn't. Firstly Peter Hook says on his MySpace that it's all over, then today Barney Sumner and Steven Morris say that the band (all two of them) are still together. Just as the band decided back in 1980 that they would not be Joy Division any longer without the late Ian Curtis, so how can New Order be New Order without Peter Hook? (Or for that matter Gillian Gilbert?)

I can't understand how the band can carry on now. Maybe it would be for the best if Barney and Steven would just call it a day.
