What Ogg Vorbis encoder would you like to see in a listening test?, oggdropXPd 1.9.0 vs. oggenc2.85 (Either libVorbis v1.2.3 aoTuVb5.7)

I'm going to conduct a multi-format listening test very soon, and I need only one encoder per format. I'm deciding between oggdropXPd 1.9.0 vs. oggenc2.85 (Either libVorbis v1.2.3 aoTuVb5.7), and I wanted on what your thoughts are, since I don't have much experience with Ogg Vorbis. All the encoders are coming from Rarewares.org.

If someone wants to do some adventurous testing. Try out FFvorbis which is the vorbis encoder internal to ffmpeg. It generally produces horrific results[1]. It is suddenly interesting because a lot of people will be using ffmpeg to transcode into webm and some people seem to have a hard time believing that the ffmpeg encoder sounds worse than libvorbis or aoTuV. Some independent results might go a long way towards saving the world from billions of files encoded with that encoder.

[1] No blind testing is really required, for example: http://myrandomnode.dyndns.org:8080/~gmaxwell/fffail/new01/ and http://myrandomnode.dyndns.org:8080/~gmaxwell/fffail/new02/
