Hello participants to v6ops WG,

What is the status of a CLAT implementation on iPhone?  Any hint in that

I am asking because in private conversation I have noticed doubts about
this being done.  Or, since the iPhone relies on a bsd derivative,
it would be technically feasible to implement CLAT on it; it is nothing
more than some iptables address translation plus a bit of python
scripting in case.

(CLAT is needed by some IPv4 apps to continue working on a smartphone
  connected solely with an IPv6-only PDP type).
