pending contains "useful stuff that hasn't been reviewed" - in other
words stuff that needed to be written to implement library X, but which
doesn't form part of it's interface and wasn't reviewed and doesn't
necessarily have the ultimate/best interface.  So.... you would need to

1) Find another library where the component naturally belongs, and
persuade them to adopt it (maybe with changes), or
2) Get it reviewed as a component in it's own right.

Once it's "official" then the original library can be changed to use the
new version.
