Also, what should I expect to have to do when using the new binary

its own either, though perhaps it will do better than I expect.
pkgin itself should work fine, the only known issues are no support for
SUPERSEDES at present, and any packages that have not marked CONFLICTS
correctly will cause problems during the upgrade attempt.
The latter hit us recently when upgrading our build environment from
2018Q4 to 2021Q4 as the mkfontdir -> mkfontscale change a few years ago
didn't add CONFLICTS entries, so you end up hitting errors during the
upgrade with PLIST conflicts instead of being told up-front that there
will be a conflict and to remove the old package first.
Other than that though pkgin should work correctly. I always recommend
upgrading pkgin itself first (i.e. pkg_add -U pkgin) as there have been
some upgrade issues in the past that I've fixed in recent versions.
