What does "the nuclear option" mean?

gavelRubber hose has a good post explaining that the term "nuclear option" doesn't refer merely to the seriousness of eliminating the filibuster, but even more to the fall-out that might follow, as Democrats invoke little-used rights to bring business to a halt.
(See this previous post for a different strategy that has been mentioned along these lines.)
