Converting from Java project to BB project in Eclipse?

I have some old Java projects that I would love to convert to BlackBerry projects.  Has anybody found a faster way than just creating a new BB project and importing the files?

I tried editing the .project file to include the missing lines from a BB project, and created a BlackBerry_App_Descriptor.xml, but this didn't work for me.  It changes the project icon to include the BB symbol, but the project won't build, I get "Blackberry Pre-Process Builder' has a NullPointerException.

Anybody had better luck than me?

My impression is that setting up a BB project properly involves so much bookkeeping (much of it undocumented) that starting from scratch is going to be easier than converting.
