I have felt the same way. Is the reason it's not already done (and the
pitfall for you if you take on a project like this) that "re-write major
chunks of Emacs" is a pretty big job?

There is already Emacs ported to Android; it isn't very convenient nor
working that well yet IMO. Maybe that project could use some help to
make it work well enough to use for this??
