Converting Wp Comments to Buddy Press Forums

Hello, I have some comment threads that are way too long in a regular WP Blog, and these discussions would be better off in their own forum topic . Just installed Buddy press and WordPress MU and did an import of existing posts and comments in to Buddy Press/Wordpress new site.

Is there a way of exporting out the comments for wordpress and then importing them as new Buddypress forums? Would I have to create the buddy press forum first and then only import the one topic at a time or how could I do this?
