Presumably, this may also make it easier (or even possible) for reserved 
slots to work, since the server won't have to try and keep track of who 
was in a reserved slot on the last run of the server?

Absolutely - this is completely the best way. It's worked well for HL 
based servers for a long time - there are literally hundreds of 
different plugins out there for it.

Glad to see DICE is listening to the needs of the server admins.. this 
is almost too good to be true. Now if we can just get a Linux server 
release to coincide with the client release, I think we may have a 
winner ;-)
