Too simple!  Thank you.

No, or at least that possibility hadn't occurred to me.  What I was
thinking of was a way to specify in the document *instance* that if no
other stylesheet was specified, a particular stylesheet should be used.
In the best of all possible worlds, I could override that specification
from the command line, so that for the nine times out of ten the default
is used, the command line is just "jade foo.sgm", while the tenth time
it would be "jade -d alt.dsl foo.sgm".

Thanks for the assistance.
