Sheep it limits the filesize to 500 Mb, and that is already not a lot if you ask me. Will it be possible to increase it in the future ?

As of today BURP has a 501MB upload limit.

If you have a 501MB single scene file then it is typically a sign that something is wrong - that the scene has not been compacted properly. Remember that those 501MB are uploaded once by you, but the server has to dish it out to upwards 1000 machines if it is a long session (and it better has to be at 501MB).
For very large productions (think entire movies) BURP has experimental support for libraries and includes. That way the textures and models can be re-used in many scenes without having to upload them every time.

Is there actually some viable "competition" out there now?

Good thing it's not BOINC-based, otherwise I might be tempted to jump ship :P
