(Your english is far better than mine to complain about this! ;-) )
Maybe sudo-trinity was trinitized as a first way to ensure portability 
regardless distro's one (that may be too fresh or too old...?)

I hope this will be fixed soon.
To be honest, when I discovered Trinity I was very happy to be able to 
get back to KDE3 under Debian/Squeeze. And then, I asked aptitude to 
install Trinity and was close to give up when I read that original sudo 
package would be replaced be this "stranger's" sudo-trinity package. I 
even ask the debian-user-list about that.

But still, I have no regrets for the moment!
