You can just add some build.gradle files for you existing projects and
not change the project structure at all so eclipse should still work
with them. This is how StoryMaker was done. We ended up not doing
that with one of our new dependancy libraries (liger) so it won't work
full right this moment, but you should be able to at least see how the
build files work.
