I have a SilverStripe website where I would like to keep track of changes to a members profile. If I add the Versioned extension to the Member class (well the CustomMember class) will that cause any problems to the the Members functions, e.g. login in, or viewing the admin section?

I have no idea what side effects applying versioned to Member might cause.

As an alternative I'd add an onAfterWrite instead that save the changes...

public function onAfterWrite() {

	$arrChanged = $this->getChangedFields(true,1);

	if (count($arrChanged)) {
		//create a MemberHistory log here?

That's the method the website is using at the moment, I'm just wondering if versioning would be cleaner and give an option of rolling back changes.
