Just fyi, one should not assume that GNUnet as a whole should run on a
mobile device anyways, due largely to metadata leakage issues. 

We'll make GNS run over Tor with only a few processes.  In practice, the
processes relevant for a mobile application could perhaps be bundled
into an application somehow. 

Anyways, privacy tools like Tor, GPG/PGP, XMPP+OTR, etc. arrive extremely 
late on iOS, if they arrive at all.  Just don't use iOS if you care about
