Hemisphere, Cylinder, and Cone wedge shapes #3

Currently composite shapes like Hemisphere, Cylinder, and Cone can only be rendered with fully circular bases. There is no easy way to render a quarter-sphere or half-cone.

One solution may be to add a quarters option, similar to Ellipse. For example, quarters: 2 would render a half-cone.

This would be a great feature to have. In the mean time, is there any workaround to make a half-hemisphere? (A quartersphere!)

Would it be more flexible to offer wedges of a certain angle, say multiples of 2*pi radians? So a full circle would be 1, a quarter circle would be 0.25, etc.

That sounds great! Does anyone know if there's a way of changing how tall an Hemisphere is? Maybe I'm missing something but changing the width or height only makes the base larger (can be seen better if a backface color is set).
