Best solo leveling spec from 80-85?

Does anyone have an opinion on what the best/fastest solo leveling spec is for pallies going from 80-85? I'm thinking of leveling my alt pally up to 85 a while after cata hits, but I'm not sure whether it will be more efficient to go prot or ret. Anyone have some input?

Ret.

You can go prot if you want to level via instances but for obvious reasons, ret is better for leveling.

Really ret? Because I was told by someone with a beta key that prot with ret gear was in fact the best. Purely because aggroing multiple mobs and if 1 or 2 have special skills or hit hard it could get dicey and you might have to run away and/or die.

I would like someone with a Beta key to answer this. I currently have a ret and holy set and don't know which one I want to level in.

If I solo elites or something I just save my HP for WoG as Ret. Prot is better for packs of mobs, solo instances etc. For normal quests go ret. Besides AS what does prot have?
