dangerous behaviour of scp

Is scp ever sync'd with any updated, improved, bug-fixed rcp tree? I 
know that some that the version of rcp included with Mac OS X is a 
little diff, which I assume comes from freeBSD. Is it ever updated, or 
is it one of those things that you just really want to leave alone and 
never touch?

Keeping scp almost identical to rcp is all well and good, but which 
version of rcp? What about actual not-functionality-changing-bug-fixes?
