Modifying Alert Templates AFTER the alert has been created

I have created an alert for some 40 members of our company. I was using a custom alert template, but it seems that the subject line of the alert email is less-than-helpful to our users (along the lines of "732 has been changed").
I know I can edit an alert template with the drop-down on the alert, but does that change that single instance of the alert, or does it modify the template for all users?
I would truly hate to have to modify ~40 alerts manually...
(and the reason I had to create 40 copies of the same alert was that SharePoint doesn't deal well (or at all) with nested AD groups -- this is an area that SharePoint Solutions could certainly help we lowly Sys Admins, either with enhancements to Alert Manager, or, if necessary, a separate product!)
