Would it be possible for Dropbox to proxy my connection while I am downloading a very large file such that it stored it directly to the Dropbox cloud rather than me having to bring it down locally (which is fast), then upload it back to Dropbox (which is slow on my fiber Internet connection?  In my mind, if I am logged into a web site, say Microsoft Action Pack, and downloading a giant installer for some enterprise application, if I am also already logged into Dropbox, why could not that connected be proxied such that it went directly into Dropbox while I am downloading it?  Make sense?
