Checked out a few web storage possibilities. One that looks like a
perfect fit is box.net <http://enabled.box.net>. They specifically give
you an API, and give you a way to let users create an account easily.
There are already a number of free programs that use it, such as a
Firefox bookmark synchronizer. See http://enabled.box.net/docs
Sounds like you ned to create a box.net project, for which you create an
API key. Would be nice (according to the TOS) if this project could be
more general-purpose than just for freeciv; e.g. if it could apply to
saving/loading game files for multiple games.
To do that, I suppose it would need to be external to freeciv; maybe
just a separate folder-sync program (of which some already exist).
In that case no modification of freeciv would be necessary.
is already one sufficiently generic to handle this need, e.g. a general
