Since this is a completely (in some sense) new feature, I felt it was
appropriate to put all --signoff-related tests in their own file. So,
if the need arises to put more tests concerning the interaction of
signoff with other stuff, this new test file can be extended.

A better question would maybe be how do we want this to interact? For
example, with -i: do we want -i --signoff to just sign off everything?
Or do we want a new -i command (o, signoff) to signoff only individual
commits on request? When preserving merges, do we want to sign-off
merge-commits too? I'm not entirely sure what the best policy would
