Hm. I think that losing the shadow casting or rasterizing the vectors is the only workaround right now. Regarding the lost time due to the rasterization, we might have to admit that time is being lost looking for another solution ...? :-)

Anyway, there's another workaround if you need to have the shadows. I'm not sure how you're set up, but you could figure out a way to make shadows on a plain subject by filling the subject with white, then rendering the shadows on the white subject. Then you import that render, and lay it over the normal object in multiply mode, with no shadow-casting on (to avoid the bad lines). The downside is, you have to do it over again if camera/subject/lighting changes. It's a thought.
