Gen 2 to 3 MITM trading?

I've been thinking about how you can't trade from Gen 2 to 3 for some reason, and I had a thought. Could we use a Python program to intercept and modify the data between the games in such a way that a Gen 2 game will see the other end of the link as a Gen 2 game, and the Gen 3 game will see a Gen 3 game? IMO, this could work, but it really isn't useful, but I might as well share my thoughts here just in case someone wants to pick it up.

This could be done without too much problem by connecting two link cables to probably an Arduino, Pi or smth.
It's not useful at all, plus the EV systems aren't very compatible, data structures would be a pain to convert…

But yeah, maybe someone bored will do it :D
