Conditional Transcoding?

Is there a way to perform conditional transcoding in Max? I'd like to point it at a directory tree and have it transcode anything that's ALAC to AAC, while leaving everything else alone.

I'd also like to be able to tell it to transcode ALAC and make a copy of anything else.

The idea is to be able to take a master library of mixed lossless and lossy files, and end up with a mobile library of all the songs at a lower bitrate.

This is a good idea! You can't do it in any current version of Max, but could you post a feature request?
