Run RTS on iOS?

I'm still learning the ins and outs of how this all works, but I think it might be possible to run RTS on an iOS device, for example, an iPad. We know it's possible to convert RTS to an app via wine because Westy has done it, although we haven't been able to duplicate it again ( :( ). Then, all that's required to run RTS is X11.

Tonight I found a SSH client for iOS that includes X11 - iSSH - SSH / VNC Console.

It seems like there should be some way to combine these pieces of technology to make RTS a mobile app for iOS. Is anyone out there familiar brilliant enough to figure this out?

wine doesn't run and can't run on iOS. Unless you jailbreak it, iOS doesn't allow emulators.

Right. Winetricks has a way to package RTS as a self contained app. I'm ignorant as to whether or not that app would work cross platform (OSX and iOS).
It wouldn't be necessary to have wine installed on iOS, nor would it be necessary to jailbreak it.

iOS apps and OSX apps are very different, I'll admit that I'm not fully read up on Wine but if the package is meant to work on OSX it won't work on iOS
