The advantage of writing a real, native service is that you get logging in
Event Viewer, and that it'll handle service control requests more cleanly.
Pretty much all a wrapper can do is start and stop a program - I haven't
seen one that'll handle pause and continue requests, for example.  Still, a
service wrapper beats the heck out of running it on the desktop.
