Can a notification in the dashboard be implemented for pending appointment?

Hi,

Just wondering if this can be a feature request (unless there is some way to implement it). I think it would be great if in the same way a new reply or topic in bbPress forum, or a plugin that needs an update generates a small number 1 in the dashboard menu, that same notification could be generated when a new pending appointment comes in.

Currently without email notification the only way to realize if an appointment has come in is to go to the pending appointments section.
