Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Maybe this is a stupid question, because, if this was trivial, Dropbox and other similar tools would have made use of the functionality. And if it was trivial it would create horrible security holes. So, ok, it is not trivial, but why? What (and where) should one do to enable this kind of functionality?

You should be able to do something like this using WebDAV and davfs2. See WebDAV mounting under linux for details, but I repeat the highlights below:

mkdir /mnt/webFolders
mount.davfs2 https://dav.test.com/share/ /mnt/webFolders
umount /mnt/webFolders
