1Password syncing is a much
easier problem for the software engineers than syncing OF databases. With OF they have to deal with hierarchical structure, repeating items, and changing status (start dates, due dates). 1Password just has to deal with flat lists. The syncing capabilities and reliability provided by OF are an engineering marvel.
That said, I love Dropbox and appreciate that 1Password syncs using it now. The Omnicians, having solved the syncing problem in general, could probably port that solution to support Dropbox without too much trouble. On the other hand, there are occasional complaints on the forums that OF already has too many syncing options—tyranny of choice and all that.
