It's standard Django so what you suggest is technically trivial.
'Friendly URLs' are OK in principle as long as the original author
chooses a good name, and does not change it. These things are highly
likely to get linked to.
The other concern is to keep it short. I prefer URLs which can be
read OK after being indented 2-3 times in email discussions. We're
up to 37 chars already with a two-digit code and I am not sure if,
say, a 30-char limit would be enough.
We looked at several systems.
- ActiveState Python cookbook uses numbers only
- Djangosnippets uses numbers only
- Stackoverflow uses what you suggest..

If someone browsed to /snippets/11/, should the browser redirect them
to /snippets/11/colourised-python/code/ , or the other way round?
