Maybe the first question is "what needs to be fixed?"

Let's assume for the sake of discussion that there is a port of Jmol to iPads to address the need for image updating performance.  Let's also assume that Jmol has been factored into UI, scripting, parsing raw source, image calculation, and image rendering components (or libraries) that can be worked on separately.

What pieces of the existing Jmol code base would go into each of these iPad components?  How would they need to be changed to run on an iPad?

The challenge of open source is "who's going to fix this and how?" Perhaps our discussion should move in that direction?
