Do a search for mental ray cartoon shader...

In one of the nodes used to make up the shader you can choose what contours to render one of which being wire frame.

i did that .. but there is two problems :

1. it trianglete the polygon .. and thats ugly.

2. only solid color can be assigned to the wire (stroke)
