Package File for Different Mathematica Versions

I am writing a package file for Mathematica. I have two versions of Mathematica targeted: 5.2 and 6.0.x. It would be nice to use some of the improvements in Version 6.0.x without losing backwards compatibility with Version 5.2. I imagine one way to implement this would be the following: If $VersionNumber >= 6 then ... else ... However, I would prefer not to put a bunch of If statements into my code; multiple lines would have to be modified. Is there are more elegant way around this problem? Can a function be defined for a particular versions of Mathematica in a package file? Thanks again for all of your help.
