BF.rebuildReactivity(object)
This function is normally run upon the completion of a function internally by the BF actions processor. It recursively scans the object passed and adds new reactive keys to keys that are new or do not have reactivity. You will not need to use this within a function unless that function has a callback that later mutates a reactive object. Eg: setTimeout() which takes a callback.
BF.socketConnect()
Connects the client to the BF server via a socket
BF.socketDisconnect()
Disconnects the client from the BF servers ( Goes off line)
