I don't think other scipy projects are doing anything special here; numpy and scipy never stopped using sourceforge. If you wanted to lead the way on setting up some simple download hosting on S3 or whatever for scipy projects then you could probably get numfocus to pay the hosting costs. Alternatively I'd consider Google code before going back to sourceforge - IME the service is similar overall but without sourceforge's horror of an interface.
