Classfying quadrilaterals

I have not completely followed the discussions about quadrilaterals and their
symmetry so I apologize if I raise an issue that has already been noted.
In the early discussion I saw, the assumption was being made that
a quadrilateral was plane, convex. There are also interesting issues
that come up when one allows non-convex plane quadrilaterals and plane
but self-intersecting quadrilaterals. Furthermore, not all quadrilaterals
need be plane. There are new ideas and problems to be explored in these
cases.
