If I remember rightly you have to convert the eps file to an svg file using a command line tool then work on it in Inkscape and then convert it back.
psedit ?
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Inkscape should be able to do it

You might need perlmagick (edit: no, that doesn't help :()

Can you do it via 'import'?

I've actually had some success with pstoedit which is a command-line util to export a number of different file formats from an EPS. pcolbeck nearly remembered it correctly ;). I can export to AI or SVG which Inkscape understands.
