Sorry if I came across as conceited. that wasn't my intention ;) of 
course I understand if you feel that way if you're sort of being 
"lectured to" with you guys already experienced and all (and I'm not 
being sarcastic here promise).. so yeah, that was how I saw it, someone 
who seemed to mix front-page.php and home.php and didn't seem to fully 
understand what it did..

but totally my fault, and I'm sorry for my confusion.

So, now that's cleared up (I hope) what would be the ideal way to assign 
content to the homepage? Would it be possible to make it so that 
deleting an important page (such as a page assigned as the front page or 
blog) triggers a warning popup or something? would that at least 
decrease the chances of important pages being deleted?

And yes, I just had a client do this to me 3 months a go.. it's not nice.
