Agreed. The author displays a huge lack of understanding of how TeX works.

A big problem of current projects to port TeX is that most of them rely in the original translation from pascal to C, which is just a hack turned into a maintenance nightmare. I believe a better approach would be to write a better translator that would be easier to integrate with different environments such as iOS.
