I can't find anything other than one example in the documentation about "show:" and was wondering how it
differs from "x:" which at least appears in "-list format". Was it intended to be a replacement or synonym for "x:", as "canvas:" replaced "xc:" ?

The main difference for me is that with -write show: processing can continue while the image remains displayed. With -write x: processing stops until the window is closed.
