Now that we have SigLevel fully implemented, do we want/need something
like this for a command line override? Perhaps most useful on a -U
<file> or -U <url> operation [1].


[1] Alternatively, do we want/need more granularity on SigLevel? Just
as we have an override on a per-database level, it might be wise to
have a 'UpgradeSigLevel' top-level option that would default to the
global SigLevel setting but could be tweaked to take effect only for
-U operations.
