List versioning and the Lists web service

I'm using the Lists web service extensively to write to custom lists and was recently asked about turning on versioning.  I've done a test on a list created just for testing purposes and didn't experience any issues, but before I flip the switch on my real lists I wanted to make sure there aren't any pitfalls I'm missing.

Edited to add: I'm linking these lists together as if they were relational tables.  Would there be any issues with that and versioning?

You shouldn't see any issues. The Web Service is going to write to the current version in the same way that it would work through the UI.

Note that the Versions Web Service will allow you to work with versions.
