Adding WordPress 2.3 Tags to a Theme

Matt Mullenweg linked to a post on Aiming for Independence about adding the new tags to your WordPress theme.
Thankfully, much like categories, it is a simple adjustment, requiring only another bit of WordPress specific template code.

I, for one, am glad it is so simple to implement and I hope most theme makers will update their themes to include this functionality.
My biggest question is “what will happen if we take the newly updated theme, and place it on a blog running a previous version of WordPress?”
Is there some way to check which version of WordPress is being run, or will we have to put out a WordPress 2.3 only version of each and every theme?
