Comment (by Otto42):

 Replying to [comment:2 technosailor]:
 > The problem, for clarification, is that when the default ping status is
 closed - as it is in my cases, pings/trackbacks are not shown on posts
 (unless, as you say, I've specifically opened them or older posts that had
 ping status open). It doesn't seem right then, in that case, to show
 pings/trackbacks from blogs when I haven't approved them from being posted
 to the blog. I'll rework the patch this evening.

 Okay then, but I still fail to see the problem. The recent comments widget
 can only show pings and comments that are actually made. And for them to
 be made, comments/pings must be open on that specific post. In other
 words, the pings must exist to be shown, and the pings must be open for
 the pings to exist. So if it exists, then pings are open for that post,
 and your (proposed) patch does nothing whatsoever.

 As far as approval goes, it's checking that comment_approved=1, so
 unapproved comments/pings still won't be shown until you approve them.
