The Spark-Core needs a state. It should not forget the settings after a reboot.
I would like to have an online key-value store. e.g. to store parameters and configuration properties even after reboots. With the usual data types.
It needs method calls in the firmware, and in Cloud Rest API as well. Showing them in the build/IDE would be great. There should be some defined behaviour in the firmware if the cloud can not be reaching within some seconds.
(PS: When I read the Cloud-Variables description for the first time, I actually thought it would be this feature. )
