For photos, being able to share them online is highly useful; for financial
documents I don't want to share them and there is no useful web view, and I
care much more about keeping them confidential.

It would be nice if I could use just one tool/service and choose on a
per-folder basis whether to encrypt the files.  (Of course I realize
options have a cost, in development time, complexity, ui, bugs...)

I guess you can stack ecryptfs on top of u1.
