Suggestion to indicate ongoing review

Issue #16850 new

People have an option to approve or decline a review. Adding a third value 'reviewing' can be used by a reviewer to indicate towards a submitter that the person is currently doing the review.
For larger PR's, or if there is a large number of PR's then submitters may want to know if somebody is doing review, or a review has begun.
Secondly, if multiple reviewers has begun a review, and a merge is allowed, then it's good to know that more people are looking at the PR's and let them finish before doing the merge - perhaps while a PR is in review by at least one, then a merge should be blocked to allow for hte reviewer to finish his work (currently ongoing review is futile, if somebody else approves and merges before the other reviewers work is done).
