Automatic Auto Trace

I know my subject sounds weird but i'll try to explain it as clear as I can.
Here's the case, what i want to happen is I want to have an auto trace in on of my compositions in a project which has a logo in it. Normally i can do this by selecting the layer then Layer> Auto trace. Now, It gives me a mask of the logo i have in that comp.
Question is, is there a way that if i drop a different logo in the same composition, it will trace the new logo automatically without doing the Layer>Auto Trace? Is there a script which does automatic tracing without doing the manual auto trace?
Can you explain why would you want to do this? I mean, even if you find something that does auto trace for every frame on your comp...the created masks would have no relation with one another. So any effects that need a directly input from an specific mask won't work either.
I also need to automate an auto-trace and am having no luck.
I know the settings I need so just want to loop through the selected comps and apply the auto-trace via script to each one. This way I can set them running over night.
