Has anyone found a command line AAC encoder that will use QuickTime/iTunes to encode files?

I want to automate converting all my FLAC files to AAC (m4a) and I can do it with FAAC but I would prefer the quality of the QT/iTunes encoder. It seems like it wouldn't be hard for someone to write a small command line application that uses the CoreAudio API to do this work.

Has anyone seen such a tool? I've had no luck finding one.

Thanks!

This sounds like it is something that could be done with an AppleScript. If one already exists, it's probably at Doug's AppleScripts for iTunes.
