Ross MacAfter effects script composition duration

Hi all,

I would like to create or use (if already available, though I cant find it) a script that changes multiple composition durations.
Basically I have created a project that checks a bunch of different things such as broadcast legal colours etc and also burns in titles etc...
I have one composition called "INPUT" that is used in all the other compositions. So whenever I change the input compositions layer all layers using input are updated throughout the project. Which is great but it would be better if when the input layer is changed to a file of a different duration all the comps would be changed as well and trimmed to match the duration of the file.
This way I can simply change that file and render out the various render comps without manually going in and changing the duration each time.

Anyone know of a script that does this or a way of getting after effects to do this would be greatly appreciated.

What exactly are you doing? Tagging spots, for example?
