`skip` examples

RSpec offers a number of ways to indicate that an example should be skipped
and not executed.

Scenarios
No implementation provided
Given
a file named "example_without_block_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.describe "an example" do
  it "is a skipped example"
end
When
I run rspec example_without_block_spec.rb
Then
the exit status should be 0
And
the output should contain "1 example, 0 failures, 1 pending"
And
the output should contain "Not yet implemented"
And
the output should contain "example_without_block_spec.rb:2"
Skipping using `skip`
Given
a file named "skipped_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.describe "an example" do
  skip "is skipped" do
  end
end
When
I run rspec skipped_spec.rb
Then
the exit status should be 0
And
the output should contain "1 example, 0 failures, 1 pending"
And
the output should contain:
Pending: (Failures listed here are expected and do not affect your suite's status)

  1) an example is skipped
     # No reason given
     # ./skipped_spec.rb:2
Skipping using `skip` inside an example
Given
a file named "skipped_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.describe "an example" do
  it "is skipped" do
    skip
  end
end
When
I run rspec skipped_spec.rb
Then
the exit status should be 0
And
the output should contain "1 example, 0 failures, 1 pending"
And
the output should contain:
Pending: (Failures listed here are expected and do not affect your suite's status)

  1) an example is skipped
     # No reason given
     # ./skipped_spec.rb:2
Temporarily skipping by prefixing `it`, `specify`, or `example` with an x
Given
a file named "temporarily_skipped_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.describe "an example" do
  xit "is skipped using xit" do
  end

  xspecify "is skipped using xspecify" do
  end

  xexample "is skipped using xexample" do
  end
end
When
I run rspec temporarily_skipped_spec.rb
Then
the exit status should be 0
And
the output should contain "3 examples, 0 failures, 3 pending"
And
the output should contain:
Pending: (Failures listed here are expected and do not affect your suite's status)

  1) an example is skipped using xit
     # Temporarily skipped with xit
     # ./temporarily_skipped_spec.rb:2

  2) an example is skipped using xspecify
     # Temporarily skipped with xspecify
     # ./temporarily_skipped_spec.rb:5

  3) an example is skipped using xexample
     # Temporarily skipped with xexample
     # ./temporarily_skipped_spec.rb:8
Skipping using metadata
Given
a file named "skipped_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.describe "an example" do
  example "is skipped", :skip => true do
  end
end
When
I run rspec skipped_spec.rb
Then
the exit status should be 0
And
the output should contain "1 example, 0 failures, 1 pending"
And
the output should contain:
Pending: (Failures listed here are expected and do not affect your suite's status)

  1) an example is skipped
     # No reason given
     # ./skipped_spec.rb:2
