Good Looking Dashed Lines?

Consider a vertical line of length  h -- for example:

    Line[ {{0,0}, {0,h}} 

Objective is to make it dashed, with N dashes and (for aesthetic 
purposes) *a complete dash at each end of the line*

If Dashing were expressed in "plotting units", seems like one might do 
this with something like

      Dashing[ { h/(2N-1), h/(2N-1) } ]

But Dashing uses absolute units -- and AbsoluteDashing uses printer's 
points.  Any simple way to connect either of these to h ?
