Approve workflows via API

Right before we hit the approval step in our workflow, we ping Slack with a link to the workflow so that someone can go into CircleCI to approve. We’d love it if we could respond to our chatops bot and it could approve the job without us having to leave Slack. However, there doesn’t seem to be a public API that exposes the functionality of clicking on the Approve button.

    This is a much needed feature, we really need this functionality in the API as well.

    It would also be useful if there was a way to prevent users from approving, and only having an API call be able to approve. We'd like to implement some workflows that have an API approval in them, but don't want users to also be able to go in to approve something manually.
