Create example aliases

Use config.alias_example_to to create new example group methods that define
examples with the configured metadata. You can also specify metadata using
only symbols.

Scenarios
Use `alias_example_to` to define a custom example name
Given
a file named "alias_example_to_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.configure do |c|
  c.alias_example_to :task
end

RSpec.describe "a task example group" do
  task "does something" do
    expect(5).to eq(5)
  end
end
When
I run rspec alias_example_to_spec.rb --format doc
Then
the output should contain "does something"
And
the examples should all pass
Use `alias_example_to` to define a pending example
Given
a file named "alias_example_to_pending_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.configure do |c|
  c.alias_example_to :pit, :pending => "Pit alias used"
end

RSpec.describe "an example group" do
  pit "does something later on" do
    fail "not implemented yet"
  end
end
When
I run rspec alias_example_to_pending_spec.rb --format doc
Then
the output should contain "does something later on (PENDING: Pit alias used)"
And
the output should contain "0 failures"
Use symbols as metadata
Given
a file named "use_symbols_as_metadata_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.configure do |c|
  c.alias_example_to :pit, :pending
end

RSpec.describe "an example group" do
  pit "does something later on" do
    fail "not implemented yet"
  end
end
When
I run rspec use_symbols_as_metadata_spec.rb --format doc
Then
the output should contain "does something later on (PENDING: No reason given)"
And
the output should contain "0 failures"
