First, I don't really see why an attack should be estimated by the tool used. If a 10 years old exploit would work, why should an attacker look for and use a 0day? It's silly allocation of resources.
Burrowing from that, if the attack is successful, and the loss is significant, I think the way there - although cute, is irrelevant except for the defender.
