I think that there are two use cases for pending build indication:

1. It helps to know whether a fix for current problems has already landed. Currently, I have to go to either my webkit-changes folder in Mail, or to trac.webkit.org.

This is tracked as bug 122180.

2. Sometimes bots get stuck, and looking at pending builds helps discover that.

I think that this we should display ETA and last finish time for each bot (see also bug 122661). It's slightly non-trivial because there are sometimes multiple bots per tester, but not hard - the information is all available in JSON status.

One way or another, the current situation with displaying pending build count is very confusing, especially so for testers, which will combine all pending runs for the next cycle.
