I don't see any obvious way to distinguish different versions of color-theme (e.g. no variable to test). Perhaps there is a function or variable that I could test now (using fboundp or boundp), which is not defined in versions prior to 6.6.0? In ignorance of that, I'm doing this currently:
... (and (prog1 (require 'color-theme nil t)
(load-library "color-theme-library"))
I use `load-library' because there is no feature to require (see bug #29141). I use the prog1 because I don't know how to distinguish color-theme versions, and I need the `and' to tell me whether color-themes, hopefully including the available themes, was loaded.

So my request is to add both `(provide 'color-theme-library)' (see bug #29141) and some way to distinguish versions. That won't really simplify my code, because I'll still need to do something like the above in order to handle older versions. But it would simplify things later, perhaps.
