Help me design a stretching/exercise program to allow me to do the splits. What stretches should I be doing? How long should I hold the stretch? Any particular exercises I should be practicing? What's a reasonable timeframe for developing this skill?

I'm a healthy 27-year old male. I would classify my current flexibility as okay but not great--I can touch my toes without bending my knees but not much more than that; I can comfortably put my legs at a little more than 90 degree angle in a seated straddle stretch.
