`pending` examples

RSpec offers a number of different ways to indicate that an example is
disabled pending some action.

Scenarios
`pending` any arbitrary reason with a failing example
Given
a file named "pending_without_block_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.describe "an example" do
  it "is implemented but waiting" do
    pending("something else getting finished")
    fail
  end
end
When
I run rspec pending_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:
Pending: (Failures listed here are expected and do not affect your suite's status)

  1) an example is implemented but waiting
     # something else getting finished
`pending` any arbitrary reason with a passing example
Given
a file named "pending_with_passing_example_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.describe "an example" do
  it "is implemented but waiting" do
    pending("something else getting finished")
    expect(1).to be(1)
  end
end
When
I run rspec pending_with_passing_example_spec.rb
Then
the exit status should not be 0
And
the output should contain "1 example, 1 failure"
And
the output should contain "FIXED"
And
the output should contain "Expected pending 'something else getting finished' to fail. No Error was raised."
And
the output should contain "pending_with_passing_example_spec.rb:2"
`pending` for an example that is currently passing
Given
a file named "pending_with_passing_block_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.describe "an example" do
  pending("something else getting finished") do
    expect(1).to eq(1)
  end
end
When
I run rspec pending_with_passing_block_spec.rb
Then
the exit status should not be 0
And
the output should contain "1 example, 1 failure"
And
the output should contain "FIXED"
And
the output should contain "Expected pending 'No reason given' to fail. No Error was raised."
And
the output should contain "pending_with_passing_block_spec.rb:2"
`pending` for an example that is currently passing with a reason
Given
a file named "pending_with_passing_block_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.describe "an example" do
  example("something else getting finished", :pending => 'unimplemented') do
    expect(1).to eq(1)
  end
end
When
I run rspec pending_with_passing_block_spec.rb
Then
the exit status should not be 0
And
the output should contain "1 example, 1 failure"
And
the output should contain "FIXED"
And
the output should contain "Expected pending 'unimplemented' to fail. No Error was raised."
And
the output should contain "pending_with_passing_block_spec.rb:2"
