Bug Description

When partitions are created it happens that `parted` warns the user about non-optimal partition alignment. Rather than telling the user _that_ the partition is aligned non-optimal, it'd be very helpful to explain why the alignment is non-optimal or how such an optimal alignment would look like. Example:

    mkpart primary btrfs 0 100%
    Warning: The resulting partition is not properly aligned for best performance.
