"I'd be every bit as willing for a dentist to be drilling as to ever let a woman in my life." This solves the redundancy and the as/than problem without altering the rhyme, the rhythm, or the meaning. The split infinitive, to me, is inconsequential--everybody does it from time to time--even grammarians--in agitated speech as opposed to careful writing.
