This helps a lot for users.. the below are the couple of ideas I got in mind

1. users should be strictly directed to add these details in the snippet
documentation (not all might do)
2. we need to detect the modules used in the snippets, ask them to provide
versions for them during submission
3. (instead of 2): we can ask them to attach "requirements.txt". this
should be quite good and simple way to handle things..

*Detecting the modules* in the snippets, adding them as tags for improving
search is one of the possible feature I mentioned in proposal (at the
bottom of the page)
