Egg in pie crust or not?

Some use butter/shortening and cold water with flour, and others just use egg instead of cold water. And I haven't tried the vodka technique because I prefer to drink it.

Any preference? Is one better for a certain application? I'm used to the standard with water but have been studying pate brisee, sucre and sablee which almost always use egg.
