2D to 3D graphics?

Dear Mathgroup,
Is there any way to transform a general (2D) Graphics objects to a
Graphics3D object (with zero z coordinates)? I have a feeling that it is
either very simple or very complicated. Have I missed something in the Book?

Then I of course also want to be able to rotate the graphics in three
dimensions, by RotateShape, but that is maybe to ask too much.

I have experimented a bit with StackGraphics, since it seems to take 2D
graphics as input, and 3D as output, but have not yet managed to manipulate
the output of StackGraphics in any way.
