I am a bit confused regarding the components of ESRI.ArcGIS.Geoprocessor and ESRI.ArcGIS.Geoprocessing.  Is there a specific use each lends itself to (ex: better for custom tools or stand alone apps)?  Is there a best practice for when to use which?  I am currently working on a stand alone WPF / C# application where the geoprocessing takes place in a thread without any specific user interaction. Is one of these assemblies better suited than the other for that type of environment?

Thanks for your input,
