Import Eclipse project: why the heck do I need an eclipse installation?

Why do I need to point IDEA to an eclipse installation to import an eclipse project? I don't use eclipse, and was just hoping to use this feature to ease the setup of IDEA projects from third party sources that already contains eclipse's .classptah and .project files.

probably IDEA tries to also import e.g. run configurations
from eclipse workspaces
- but surely should also work without that ;)
