Subversion hosting

I have always maintained a server at home with, among other things, some sort of version control system, first CVS, and later SVN. But after I left my home country for a postgrad degree, and became increasingly mobile, I have seriously considered, and eventually found, online providers of these services either for free or not costing an arm and a leg for the service (as at first these services were mostly for the corporate world). In the past couple of years, the number of subversion hosting services seems to have exploded, with even a website devoted solely for comparing many SVN hosting services, and more recently, a more focused review of these services.

Now many people in this forum would just suggest me to use an open source provider such as Sourceforge, or Google Code, but things are not that simple for me, since these sites do not accept just any project, and injecting unrelated stuff into the repository of my own projects would probably violate their terms of use. Besides that, I version pretty much all the documents I write, particularly my research papers, and I do not want the sources to these papers open to the public before I publish them, for obvious reasons. I have now moved my own repositories to a service called XP-Dev, which was initially awesome for giving away 1.5GB of space for free, with SSL encryption and the ability to share repositories with multiple users, but now the guy went back on his promise to keep the service entirely free, introducing a fee to get all the storage (which he says he wants to increase) and wants to remove SSL from free users.

Even though it seems that the prices are not as high as I have seen elsewhere, I was wondering if other Slashdotters have other providers among the myriad ones out there to suggest.
