We've talked to Mozilla multiple times about this possibility. They even
invited us to a special event in Mountain View around a "secure Firefox

The main issue is that they don't want to allow native binaries to run
on the device as part of apps themselves. We can easily write an HTML/JS
controller GUI, aka OrbotHTML, but we can't bundle in a native Tor arm
binary into that app, apparently.

They said we must cross-compile any native code into Javascript. I am
not sure if that was meant to be a joke or not.

Perhaps we are just not talking to the right people.
