Can Lights be Occluded?

I recently attached a spotlight to a scenery model. However, I was curious if it is currently possible for part of the model to occlude the light for greater realism? I have looked through the SDK docs, but didn't see anything about this. I could have sworn I had seen this done before, but maybe my eyes were just playing tricks on me..?

Thanks all!

Edit: I just noticed the below post, which seems to be somewhat related. So, I'm guessing the answer is currently no, but of course, correct me if I'm wrong.
