Add Default Backup Checksum Option to SSMS GUI

SSMS should have a checkbox under Server Properties, on the Database Settings page, labeled something like "Use Backup Checksums" that would toggle the sp_configure setting for "backup checksum default". This would make it easier for people to enable backup checksum default, which is a good "best practice" that the tooling should encourage.
