What are the benefits of VCT - Variable Cam Timing?

To my knowledge it is currently used in the Ford Mustang

Could you please list the benefits known.

you'll also find it in the xr6 au and on from there =)
pretty much comes down to the ability to constantly change valve timing. power and economy and all that.
