does anyone have any insight on the pros and cons of the two and what would cause someoene to use one over another?
i like Analytics, but dont know if this client should be dependent on G to gather their stats...
Since one is free and the other isn't, cost-benefit is probably your biggest consideration. What does the client's site do and will they make more money if they pay for analytics? (Of course, Google Analytics's labor cost should be taken into account. Google Analytics is not efficient for many purposes and you pay for it in extra hours.)

Now if they want to know something in depth like how many people registered on our site that entered a zip code of #*$!XX in the zip code field on the new registration page over the past 90 days that used FireFox as their browser... then i might need WT.
I think with the usage, demand and feedback that GA team gets, they will consistently add more features and "perks" to the application. All of their webmaster tools and such have gotten better year after year.
