Going Off-Camera: Radio Triggers vs 2 Canon Flashes as Slave/Master

I'm contemplating buying a set of Pocket Wizards or Flashwave IIIs to get my flash off-camera. What are the pros and cons of radio triggers versus buying a 580EX (I already have a 430EX) and using two flashes in a slave/master set-up?

Am I correct in assuming that using 2 Canon flash units gives the advantage of TTL flash vs manual calulations for radio triggers?
