Xbox 360 Mouse control via a PC. - Could it be done, and does anybody want to do it?

An idea and a question.
Firstly. I have acquired an Xbox 360 ( oh yay.. ) but being a pc gamer, I never use it due to the control limitations. I can't kill anything with a paddle, whereas with a mouse I cannot be stopped. :]

Now, I've searched and searched, and there are hardware modifications to allow the use of a mouse, but these are out of the question for myself and many others as I'd imagine.

The idea:
What I would like to do, or see done, is have a PC with software on it, and an adapter of some sort or another to run from the PC to an Xbox 360 USB port
( serial to USB data+ and data- ? )
The PC software would make the Xbox see the pc as a controller, from there the software on the pc could take inputted signals and output them to the xbox as though it was a regular controller. 

I realize the software could be a fair challenge to make, but it would make some of us PC gamers fairly happy, being given the chance to whoop the buts of those on regular consoles. 

The Question:
Is anybody reading this capable of writing the software and making an adapter, and if someone is, would they be willing to do it?

Thoughts:
Perhaps an Xbox controller's signals could be monitored and mapped by watching the controller's output over USB. I am unsure if there is software to do this but I'd bet my house and left leg that it could be done via the Linux command line though.. ;)

Would it be possible to connect two serial connections directly with the two USB data pins? A setup with minimal hardware would be ideal for most, if possible. ( referring to the things you need to build )
 ^ - would it be fast enough?

Any input would be appreciated.
