You *really* want to use the copy method

Writting a small script that take input files, probe them using ffprobe,
then create ffmpeg command with either "-c copy" or appropriate aac
settings seems to be the cleanest way you could achieve what you're asking.

Thank you for clearing up some things for me, and especially for the
explanation regarding what ffmpeg does and doesn't do.

I am thinking that I will end up doing exactly as you and another responder
suggested and make use of ffprobe.
