Please add support for writing to ALAC

Bug Description

FLAC files can be converted to ALAC files within Ubuntu using “avconv” from a command-line as follows:

$ avconv -i audio.flac -acodec alac audio.m4a

Or if converting FLAC files recursively, as follows:

$ find . -type f -name "*.flac" -exec bash -c 'avconv -i "$0" -c:a alac "${0/%flac/m4a}"' '{}' \;

I would much prefer to make this conversion from within SoundConverter's comfortable GUI environment.

Would it be possible to add support for writing to ALAC from within SoundConverter?

"avenc_alac ! mp4mux" should work. But crashes here...
