enable easy upgrade of packages inside of existing virtualenv

Issue #82 on hold

created an issue

I've gotten several requests from my devs to be able to tell tox to update the venv, rather than recreate it. Although obviously there are ways in which this could lead to a non-perfect view of the world (upgrade would not clear out old versions) we have automated CI that does fresh things on every commit and in general it should be fine for us - whereas the cost of a particular venv creation even with local cache is annoyingly high.

It seems that a -U option that can be used like the current -r option is a quick and easy way to make life better for some folks.
