The existing description text for the bulk generate section could be a little more descriptive. Currently it reads:

Bulk generation will only generate URL aliases for items that currently have no aliases. This is typically used when installing Pathauto on a site that has existing un-aliased content that needs to be aliased in bulk.

This is ok, but it would be nice to have some more text for those people who need to update existing aliases. The current description only says "..items that currently have no aliases." I myself have forgotten that I need to delete existing aliases in order to use this feature to update existing aliases. I'm proposing a small edit that just adds a line of text to read:

Bulk generation will only generate URL aliases for items that currently have no aliases. Just as well, if you would like to update an existing alias, you will need to delete the existing alias before running bulk generate. Bulk generate is typically used when installing Pathauto on a site that has existing un-aliased content that needs to be aliased in bulk.

I've actually already created a patch. Let me know what you think. I know it may seem small and silly, but it would be helpful.

Thanks.
