Why can't a bit-banger switch from open-drain to push-pull? That's just
a matter of disconnecting some pull-ups, no? And maybe you know that no
device on your bus uses IBIs? Maybe none of reasons for why bit-banging
isn't feasible are applicable?

I.e. maybe there can be a I3C bit-banger that perhaps isn't generic and
isn't full-featured, but does work just fine in some specific setup?

Cheers,
Peter
