Just don't burn the house down with the torch (don't laugh, I've seen and heard of it being done plenty, especially if you're not skilled at sweating the joints and fittings). If I had to decide what to use to re-plumb the place we're in, I think I'd be tempted to use Pex--I like the way you can (gently) curve the stuff, and it's highly resistant to pressure surges or the occasional cold weather, frozen pipe thing.
