Is that the case of emphasizing such information on this very same
documentation page? I ask because, as Leo said, I've also seen a lot
of people misusing `home.php` as the site front page, and reading back
the (English) documentation, in fact, looks confusing to me.
In the other hand, the pt_BR translation for this page curiously
switch places of `home.php` and `front-page.php`. Can this be a
contribution for all this confusion?
