Q:Hidden lines as dashed?

Hi,

I'd like to draw 3D figures with hidden lines shown as dashed lines.  I guess 
it's one of those common ways to make a polygon or a sphere look 3D-ish, 
but I can't figure out how to do that by using Plot3D, Graphics3D, etc.  

Is it not possible?  Or, do I have to go down to actual primitives and modify 
them one by one?  I hope not... there should be some trick for that, like some 
option, say, HiddenLineForm -> {0.5, 0.5}.... :-)

Any comments or suggestions are appreciated.  Thanks for your attention,
