If you really must know (and I don't think it matters) I use oggdrop because I want to encode a batch of files without requiring user intervention between each file, and because I do a lot of tagging.
Besides, I don't see how oggdrop is going to HELP me encode the entire CD to Ogg Vorbis. It's certainly much less automated than oggenc.

> oggenc -N "02" -q 4 --artist="Dido" --title="Hunter" --album="No Angel" -d "2001" -n "%%n %%t.ogg" track02.wav
That's a good idea, but it would increase the size of my batch file tremendously, because then I'd have to specify a pageful (a pageful in the ogg info viewer, not batch file) of comments for EACH track, and that would be much more maintenance than working with a single line.
It would be wonderful if DOS had some kind of escape character. Nice, simple, and elegant. But I guess those words don't really apply to DOS... (*shrug*)
