Comment (by markjaquith):

 Trivial tweaks for your consideration:

 1) "Show [page-dropdown] on the front page" might be better as "Show this
 page on the front page: [page-dropdown]"
 2) Same for the next option

 But what do I know, I'm no UI expert.

 Functionally, it seems to work as expected.

 Do you think it would be worthwhile having a little notice pop up after
 they change to using another page as their blog listing?  It could read
 something like this:

 "Your latest blog posts are now shown on http://site.com/blog/.  If you
 would like your post permalinks to appear beneath that URI, you will have
 to add "/blog/" to the front of your permalink structure."

 the whole "you will have to add ... permalink structure" phrase would be a
 link to Options/Permalinks.

 Or, to play devil's advocate against myself, we could leave them to figure
 that out on their own, because making that change will break their old
 permalinks, and WP has no built-in mechanism to redirect the old
 permalinks.  In fact, I may have just dissuaded myself. :-)

 Considering how many people I've pointed towards Home Page Control plugin,
 I imagine this will be a headline feature of WordPress 2.1
