Syncing Dropbox through code

I have been using codea for a while and I think it's the most versatile programming environment on the iPad, but I feel that it's missing one small thing. it has no simple networking framework other than the HTTP system. One idea I had to get around this is to use Dropbox as a server, saving and loading files to and from a Dropbox account that is shared between devices. But to get it to work you have to exit the project and manually sync Dropbox to get the most recent version of the file stored there. I think that there should be a function available that allows you to sync Dropbox through the project's code. If this function was available one could set up a simple improved networking system for instant messaging or even multiplayer games.
