Is it advisable to convert APE/ALAC to FLAC? How will the size change?, [TOS #6: was "APE/ALAC to FLAC conversion?"]

APE is known for it's great compression and ALAC is pretty much the same as FLAC except it's not open source and is owned by apple. Is it smart to convert these two codecs to FLAC? Will APES compression size be the same or enlarge when converted to FLAC? I would rather stick to one lossless format which is FLAC because there really isn't much problems with it and it is definitely future proof.

Are you really that concerned about a one or two percent difference in file size? Because if you're not then you should base your choice on other considerations, like compatibility.
