Automatic mirroring of music libraries to different music file formats

While ripping lossless (to FLAC or some other codec) is always advised there are times when we need lossy music files.

One example is for portable players. Lossless files take up a LOT of space, so it's more efficient to play OGGs or MP3s or whatever.

In other cases, some music players simply don't work with certain codecs. iTunes doesn't play FLAC out-of-the-box, for instance.

This idea would add a rule to maintain multiple mirrors of your music library. Your current music library becomes the source. You then declare multiple extra libraries, with the desired music file format in each one. For instance, you may say you want an MP3 version of your FLAC library. bliss would then transcode each file into the new format in the new library.
