Can Gradle "remove itself" from a project?


sometimes I would like to remove Gradle from a project (completely, including references to IDE config files).

I often clone repos from Github and import them - e.g. into Eclipse. Often they come with a build.gradle so it is smooth sailing from there.
After I imported the project into Eclipse, in some cases I would like to remove Gradle (build.gradle, gradle folder, etc.) and also the references to Buildship and the Gradle-Nature (.classpath, .project) completely!

Currently I am manually deleting and editing files.

Can I somehow ask Gradle to “remove itself”?
