You can use a func_door_rotating if you'd like to, but the animation of the prop results in a smoother animation, with a bit of a bouncing effect - which is nicer. Another thing is, with a prop you can make a panel rotate in whatever angle you'd like, with a func_door_rotating you can only make a brush rotate around one of the axes... --Mr. P.
