I thought we were talking about BBO here, not BF1942. No game developer has 
ever had a really good admin server/client interface, they build the game 
and they are doing their job best by not concentrating on related software 
that third parties are generally better at writing anyway. I watched Valve 
stomp on/out third party anti-cheat software that worked far better than 
the garbage they released to replace it.

UT does have the best provided by a developer but it still doesn't hold a 
candle to stuff like HLGUI for HL servers... not even close. As far as that 
goes, neither does the Kicker or BBO at this point in time.

All I was saying is that there is a lot more to it than just packaging BBO 
with BFV. You can't expect DICE/EA to design their next game release around 
a third party server manager.
