I don't know much about IOS development, but as I understand it, I think
you'd have to rewrite the whole storage layer of Zim too. You don't just
put arbitrary file trees on an IOS device and then use an editor to edit
the files. The only way Zim could work on IOS would be to implement file
embedded in an SQLite database locally, or read and write DIRECTLY from
a service like Dropbox.

It's not just a matter of tweaking the UI to make it small-screen
friendly, even if you have a GUI toolkit that supports the target.
