It's so crazy it just might work. I've been talking on and off with the CodePlex team for at least a year. Many of them I consider friends, so I've always been very frank with them, saying things like:
"I'll never use any Open Source Hosting service without support for Subversion."
Of course, they are using Team Foundation Server, and there's a number of connectivity options if you're cool with them, including:
Still in very active development, this tool is a proxy between a Subversion client and Team Foundation Server. You can use it against any TFS system it seems.
The first version is local proxy - it runs in your tray - but plans are for a server-side version that will require no client installation.
Unfortunately, as of this writing, there's no binary release (or instructions) but here's how you get it working.
I think that the CodePlex site is probably the most actively developed Open Source Hosting site out there. (I mean the site itself, not the activity within the projects hosted there). They are always adding new stuff and have some nice things like the Advanced View of the Issue Tracker and RSS feeds for literally everything.
I have to give them credit for putting this bridge together, and for Open Sourcing the bridge itself. I'm reading the code now, and it's pretty cool stuff. Hacky, in places, but that's to be expected given the problem domain, but there's some interesting things going on that make the code worth at least taking a look at. They've got a mini-Mocking system called MyMocks (curious) and a TCPTracing "Tivo" like program that appears to code generate tests. Also, if you're interested in WebDAV in C#, there's a playground of good ideas.
Either way, there's interesting stuff going on over there. I look forward to their 1.0 release.

Just want to tell you that the URL may be tfs01.codeplex.com as well. It's for older projects. Some of my projects are hosted on this server (i.e. BlogML).
