How to set up Box.com autosync on Ubuntu

I was one of the lucky ones who got my hands on a free 50 GB account on Box.com (former Box.net) with their campaign to launch their new Android app (the campaign runs until March 23, 2012). A similar campaign ran earlier with their IPhone/IPad app. Unfortunately, they don't offer a Linux sync app, so here I describe, step by step, how I did some ninja tricks in order to be able to automatically synchronize a certain directory on my harddrive with my Box.com account from my Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) installation.
