Many of you will have seen the recent announcement on Apple's policy change regarding interpreted code in iPhone and iPad applications:
This seems like it would open the door for the possibility of LaTeX on the iPad. I realise that there are a number of other issues - I think the iPad API doesn't allow fork(), for one, which I believe is used in the pdfTeX engine - but at least the very idea is no longer a non-starter.
Are there any ports of TeX which make the basic engine available as a library? I've never looked at the codebase for any of them.
