Request: REST API to refresh dataset on demand

I think that we need a programmatic way to trigger dataset refresh. 

 

We are currently developing an application that allows users to input some data with certain business drivers and when they are done with their input, i would like to trigger the data set refresh so that users can see the impact of the new drivers on the business.

 

Anyone else figured out how to do it with what's available right now? We used Fiddler to try to figure this out but we ran out of time and energy to sort through all the web traffic that is generated when you click on Refresh Now.
