you recently improved the quality of the AAC encoder and recomended to 
use the native FFMPEG AAC encoder over the external encoders like 
libfdk_aac or libfaac.

Regarding the quality of the encoder using Variable Bitrate the wiki 
still states: "This VBR is experimental and likely to get even worse 
results than the CBR." (https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Encode/AAC)

What does this mean? Has the quality of the VBR encoder not improved 
with the recent changes?
