Neither the hexagons from Martin's method nor those from Mark's version are
plane hexagons. It seems that Mathematica employs some optimizations in
Graphics3D which will cause a non-plane polygon to appear as though it were
actually plane.

I would be very interested in a method which would tile the torus with
plane hexagons, or with any combination of higher polygons, say, hexagons,
squares, and decagons.
