Inventing the wheel again? (vBulletin comment bridge)

I posted thin on Wordpress-community yesterday and I think it might be a good idea to post it here too, for feedback.

I've been looking for a while for a plugin that actually synchronizes comments between vBulletin- and WordPress, but still I have not found anything that fulfills my requirements - so I'm thinking of creating such thing. But there may be a small risk that I'm inventing the wheel again. This is how I want it to work:

- You create a post on your wordpress-site. When the post are created, a thread will created on the forum.
- When comments arrive on the wP-side, the forum will be updated with the comments and when comments arrive on the vBulletin-side, comments will be updated in the blogpost.

(Sidenote - When anything updates, posts are synched). My solution differs a bit from other plugins here. Normally I've seen plugins where migration is more common than transparently bridging posts between the platforms. Other plugins also offers a comment system, with links to the forum, instead of using the internal functions.

So, how big is the risk, that this wheel already exists without me knowing it?

I haven't, since I don't use WP or own a WP website.
Any new posts on your WordPress can get posted to your forum category of choice on your vBulletin and vice versa. We’ve thought of everything.
Replying to a thread in vBulletin, and you’ll notice it gets replied as a comment on that WP Post.
^ Although it costs $499 lol

Those are the only ones I could find. So yeah, if neither does what you say you want to do, then there is a good chance your product isn't invented yet.
