Synopsis: Setting assertion level at the system level

In the same way we have the option "manifest_array_type" which can be overridden by the setting with the same name, it would be nice to be able to set the assertion level of the entire system through some kind of setting which would override the assertion level set in the various option clauses.

Note that the compiler is already capable to do that to some extend: it can disable all assertions when finalizing.
