I have an S3 bucket with many thousands of files copied from a linux machine. I would like to switch all files within a folder to RRS (Reduced Redundancy Storage). How can I do this without deleting the files/objects and re-uploading them?

The AWS management console enables me to enable RRS for a folder, but this operation does not apply recursively to nested folders. Therefore I would have to manually select this on hundreds of folders, which isn't scalable.

Google finds, a Python script using Boto (writing such a script would have been my original suggestion) that appears to do this.
