    Oh.  I don't know.
    A quasicrystal will have a limited number of vertex
orientations, which you can pick out by hand.  Simply cut
out one of each type of vertex into it's own sub-image, do a
cross correlation between that and the whole image to find
where that type of vertex occurs, and add up the resulting
lists for each vertex type.

	Alternately, if you know something about the scale
invariance of the quasicrystal, find the postions of the
edges or centres of the polygons in the same way, and then
use the quasicrystal's scaling properties to find the
