I still remember when Twilight Project jumped ship from sourceforge (as soon as sourceforge went closed source for the site software), and QuakeForge wasn't far behind, the doom sayers were chanting 
"The end of sourceforge is nigh!  Get your projects off before it goes offline!", so far it hasn't happened, but I'm still wary of their ability to sustain themselves.

In general all the non-sourceforge projects get by on just basic svn service, for which there is no difference from the zerowing server.

As an aside, in my upcoming game DarkWar I'm planning to make the game free but with no service/support (beyond a basic auth system for free accounts), only the people who register the game get 
additional features pertaining to their account and more support (such as being able to file bug reports and feature requests), I'm going to see how that goes, it should at least reduce the quantity 
of idiotic bug reports by some percentage.

I could poke at Icculus about adding a GtkRadiant project on the bugzilla at http://bugzilla.icculus.org/ if anyone has an interest in such a thing, he already keeps the service running so he wouldn't 
care :)
