Agaric wants smarter timing for when automatic path creation should replace an existing path or be added in addition to

The idea is that if a post is edited right away, say within five minutes, and the title is changed, the new human and SEO-friendly path might best replace the old path.

Especially if a title is changed before the post is marked published, the first-created automatic text path should be replaced.

This new module or enhancement to pathauto could let you set which roles have these decisions automatically applied, and which roles the user gets asked for their input.

The goal is to prevent over-clutter of path aliases without breaking links nor leaving the path out of date with regard to the title.

Oh, and some way to designate the most recently defined path alias (or the editor's choice?) as primary, and have every other path including node/123 do a permanent 301 redirect there, is another essential feature.
