I've got a pretty specific question

I have a low-poly, flat-shaded human model and I wish to make certain quads perfectly flat. So basically, I don't want to see the two tris as seen in the picture. I want a homogeneous quad.

In Blender, how would I go about doing that? I'm guessing I would need some king of tool to make a face monoplanar?

(any non-blender tips would help too)

in 3DSMax there is the Make Planar tool, in the Align bar located under the graphite modeling tools

this has nothing to do with making the face actually planar

Select quads, press space and search for "flatten".

look into smoothing groups,...
look into smoothing groups, they control the aspect of light flowing from poly to poly

How badly do you need it? I have a moderate knowledge of Python scripting, and that would be a nice challenge for me to implement.
