Yea, don't get me wrong, ogg is definitely an awesome format but aacplus v2
is currently the leader in high fidelity quality at low bitrates.  24kbps
aacplus even kicks ass in my view.

I hope that this only stimulates even more competitive codecs at dialup

I'm am currently using autuvb4 at q-2 mono 44100.  This produces roughly 
28 to 34kb/s.  It's ok but I've heard AACPlus at 32kb/s stereo and it's 
definately better, unfortunately.
