When you're decorating the Member class with your own stuff, do you need to refer to the new member class from then on or can you continue using 'Member'?

For example, suppose I have a Photo object and each Photo is owned by a member. Do I need to do this:

public static $has_one = array(
'Member' => 'MyMember'

or would this still work:

public static $has_one = array(
'Member' => 'Member'

I feel rather silly for asking this but I haven't decorated the Member class much in the past.

You can still refer to it as a Member. Decorators are transparent.
