I'm glad that you have a solution that works for you.  Simple is indeed good.
Unfortunately, it won't work for everyone reading the list as it needs the globstar feature from bash version 4 or greater.
One more tidbit of painfully-gained experience in this area:  If using a solution that walks the directory tree, starting convert-ly processes, it's important to do it in a way that limits the number of concurrent invocations of convert-ly.  I've managed to wedge OSX by using a tool that failed to do that :(
