It depends if you want to version files also in other situations. If
this is the only case then it is certainly simpler just to have
specific accessors in your model:

MyModel>>imageFile: aFileModel
     imageFileVersions add: aFileModel

     ^ imageFileVersions isEmpty ifFalse: [ imageFileVersions last ]
