Workflows on Surveys in Moss? Nope!

Recently, I was trying to create a public facing survey on a public facing MOSS site. My solution was to create two survey's. One that was public and one that was private. The user would fill out the public survey, and workflow would move the response to the private survey.
This would allow for anonymous submission, but the responses would not be public.

After some testing I found that surveys do not support workflow. You will get "Failed to Start" as the result of your workflow. Searching the web a bit, i found:
which basically says workflow does not work on a survey list. It's a known bug, and there is no fix.
