In my own continued research, I was taking a look at SL4A as well.  It
does look fairly active.

I'm gonna dump a couple other links here concerning Python on Android, I
haven't assessed the state of these projects yet, but I have a friend in
a censored region with only access to an Android device, and obfs2 is
working sporadically or not at all for them, hence the research.  :)
