Ask before changing Site/Blog URL setting

Description

Please consider adding a "Are you sure you want to change your site address, this can potentially make your site unavailable.". To the settings for changing the Site URL or the Blog URL.

If somebody doesn't really know what he is doing, he will not feel very good that his blog is unavailable after just some 'experimenting' in the admin interface.

Maybe also some basic tests could be performed to check if the settings could work before saving. I'm thinking about: check if that server exists, check if it is pointing to the same install and maybe check if it is running WordWress.

An other solution would be to include a link to 'Moving Wordpress' in the codex.
