For Mac OS X users, there's a dashboard widget that'll tell you immediately who's on a server and who not (I think I found it due to Innovation mentioning it, but I'm not sure anymore). You can find it at [Clickity Click][ma]bf1942serverstatus.html (you can change what server it connects to easily).
An idea using IM sounds interesting...
@Hunter: You're right, I'm sorry, I should play more, I just don't have a lot of time right now.
