Hmm, that special case seems rather simple -- run the "find edges"
algortihm, you get a picture back (white=edge, black=not). Now calculate
the average pixel value of that image, perhas convert to logarithmic
scale, or maybe count how many pixels (in proportion to the total) are
above the average, then test how well that metric works on a few sample

So write them yourself? See above. ;-)
