 There are two settings that accept a URL on the ''General Settings'' page:
 "WordPress Address (URL)" and "Site Address (URL)".

 To me, those two labels both mean exactly the same thing. It isn't clear
 if/when I should configure different values in these fields.

 If the two settings ''do'' actually mean the same thing, then one should
 be removed and code looking-up its value should be modified to read the
 remaining setting instead.

 If the two settings serve different purposes, then each one should have a
 note describing what it is used for and the labels should be changed to
 reflect those different purposes.
