Build the light shape you want as a mesh and boolean it out of a plane, then have your light go through it- set the light and object to cast shadows, and then apply a material with 0 opacity, 0 of all the specular settings. Boom, strangely shaped spotlights.

How about creating a projector map?
Simpler rectangular shape can be found at the spotlight's parameters.

You could do that, but I've always found projector maps to look sort of fakey- also, if you want a strabgely-shaped spotlight, usually in your scene it'll be coming from a spotlight, so you'll have to model the gobo anyway.
