If iOS Cocoa is anything like regular Cocoa, there's
nothing remotely like it. You'd have to reimplement
the pack and grid geometry managers in their entirety,

Duplicating the exact behaviour of the text and
canvas widgets would be a lot of work, too.

You'd think so, but from my experience with PyGUI,
it never seems to be as simple as that. And I have
the advantage that I get to design my own API.
Trying to wrap one GUI API to make it match another
existing one is even harder.
