Replacing system sudo with MacPorts sudo?

The recently discovered vulnerability in sudo is making me nervous about my old systems. This may be unreasonable, as these systems have plenty of other vulnerabilities and I behave accordingly. However, sudo just seems like such a vital component, and this exploit particularly bad.
It doesn't look like MacPorts sudo has any dependencies, so how terrible of an idea would it be to just plop it in /usr/bin/? Do any obvious pitfalls come to mind, perhaps around configuration file paths? (I also of course realize this would be totally "unsupported", whatever that really means under the circumstances... 🙂)
I could also just wait for Apple's next open source drop, and see if their patched sudo can be compiled to target older systems... better idea?
