I do not think you can assume that the plan won't be used later with
some older snapshot.  Consider recursive plpgsql functions for a
counterexample: the inner occurrence might be the first to arrive at
a given line of the function, hence the first to plan it, yet when we
return to the outer instance we might revert to an older snapshot.

So maybe we'd need to use the SerializableSnapshot created at the start
of each transaction for this check, and not the ActiveSnapshot? Could
that work?

What about doing
PREPARE myplan select ... ;
outside of a transaction? Will this be execute inside a transaction?
Is is a query always planned upon it's first execution, and not when
"PREPARE" is issued?
