The way I see it is that they perform two different, complementary 
functions. gdalwarp is useful if you have a whole map/image you want to 
convert to a new projection and not lose any of the data. r.proj is useful 
if you already have a region of interest you're working on in the GIS, and 
want to import only the portion of the larger map/image that covers this
region, at the same resolution and with the same boundaries etc. as your 
existing maps in your location.

Does that make sense?
