show_failures_in_pending_blocks

Use the show_failures_in_pending_blocks option to run the code in pending blocks while keeping the tests pending.

RSpec.configure { |c| c.show_failures_in_pending_blocks = true }

Background
Given
a file named "spec/spec_helper.rb" with:
RSpec.configure {|c| c.show_failures_in_pending_blocks = true}
Scenarios
by default, code in pending examples is not exercised
Given
a file named "spec/example_spec.rb" with:
describe "fails" do
  pending "code will not be exercised" do
    fail
  end
end
When
I run rspec spec/example_spec.rb
Then
the output should not contain "Failure/Error: pending { fail }"
by default, code in pending blocks inside examples is not exercised
Given
a file named "spec/example_spec.rb" with:
describe "fails" do
  it "code will not be exercised" do
    pending { fail }
  end
end
When
I run rspec spec/example_spec.rb
Then
the output should not contain "Failure/Error: pending { fail }"
when turned on, pending code blocks inside examples are exercised
Given
a file named "spec/example_spec.rb" with:
require "spec_helper"
describe "fails" do
  it "code will be exercised" do
    pending { fail }
  end
end
When
I run rspec spec/example_spec.rb
