There's a guy in Berlin who offers such a service:
<http://www.prodigy-pro.com/diy/index.php?topic=37108.0>. He started
out mostly focusing on creating boards to repair/recreate older audio
equipment, but he's turned it into a general PCB service. He actually
prefers Illustrator, PDFs or even scans of boards over Gerber files.
He's a musician, and his language may be a bit flowery at times, but
there's nothing wrong with the quality of his work.
Note that he doesn't do solder masks (yet), but neither will anyone
else with an etch tank. This may or may not create leakage
susceptibility, depending on your circuit and whatever post-treatment
you give the board.
