Personally, I think we should fix that.  is_home() was intended to
always track the front page and that's how most people use it.

2 and 3 should go in trac.  Those would be good fixes.

For 4, I think the reading page is the best location among the
existing options pages.  I don't know if creating a new page for them
is worth it.
