The reason it was originally created was for an audit log. Before
saving the model, it was compared to the model that is stored in the
database, and then the differences are logged.

The plugin itself was not meant to store the differences in a log, the plugin was the mean to offer the developer the ability to compare 2 ActiveRecord objects. Anything could be done with that comparison, like store a log of changes.
