Can I really not use an Apple Store gift credit to buy an iTunes card?

I got a very generous Apple Store gift card for Christmas. However, there's scant little I want from the Apple Store, but I'd sure like to buy some music and games. However, I've discovered you can't use Apple Store credit in the iTunes or App stores. No problem, thinks I...You can buy iTunes cards through the Apple Store, so I'll...nope.
It appears that one cannot purchase iTunes gift cards using Apple Store gift card credits. Is this true? Does anyone have any double-secret ways around this seemingly ridiculous rule? Or, am I stuck with a large A-Store credit and nothing to buy?
To head-off the "Sell it on eBay" suggestions...The card was an email card, and I've already redeemed it to my Apple account.
