is lossless MP2 to MPC conversion possible?, goal: reduce bitrate of existing files.

The wiki articles on Musepack say that it's extended from the MP2 codec, e.g. Hydrogenaudio Wiki and Wikipedia

Does anybody know if it's feasible to losslessly convert MP2 files into MPC files?
If yes, does such a program already exist? (similar to mpc2sv8, the Musepack SV7 to SV8 converter)

Motivation: I'm asking this because I have many gigabytes of MP2 files stored on my hard disks. These are captured DVB radio broadcasts in 320kbps 48kHz stereo MPEG-1 Layer II format. I would like to save some storage space here and hope that Musepack with its more efficient lossless coding method can produce smaller files than MP2.

If such a tool ever existed you won't be able to save space and do a losless transcode at the same time I am afraid.
If you want to affect size you need to affect bitrate of the files I think. And if you'll affect bitrate you have to do encoding.
