GFCI Outlet on an AFCI Circuit??

I have ran across this scenerio a couple of times now; Customer wants an additional outlet on the exterior of the house for general purposes. Easiest way was to pull a feed from an existing outlet on the flip side of wall which happens to be a bedroom.. Circuit is AFCI Breaker... What effect, if any, will putting a gfci recept. into this circuit have??? Any code related issues??

I haven't heard of any problems doing it that way.
