Addin to Desktop Target version implications

Hi all,

I'm writing an Addin (that will be distributed) for ArcMap in and in the Config.esriaddinx, the Target name = Desktop and version = 10.0. Can someone tell me about the implications of this as I have not got a test computer:
If a user loads 10.1, will the Addin still be automatically included and work? Would I need to have a different version of the Addin config file with version = 10.1?

Conversely, supposing I wanted the Addin only to work for users with 10.0, not to work in 10.1, and I wanted to distribute a different version for 10.1 - how would I accomplish that?
