The pending messages shows the queue of messages that have been sent with a
time delay by the send command. Check out "send", "pendingMessages", and
"cancel" in the Transcript Dictionary for more info. (There will also be
some script examples in the upcoming version that show how this feature is
used in more detail.)

The Rev development environnment uses this quite a bit, but it's not a
debugging tool per se.
