Agreed -- the documentation for show now is terrible.  It doesn't
even mention that it can be used to show the typeset version of
an object!

What is the status of this? Here is the current documentation when doing show?

        Show a graphics object x.
    
        OPTIONAL INPUT:
            filename -- (default: None) string
    
        SOME OF THESE MAY APPLY:
            dpi -- dots per inch
            figsize -- [width, height] (same for square aspect)
            axes -- (default: True)
            fontsize -- positive integer
            frame -- (default: False) draw a MATLAB-like frame around the image
    
        EXAMPLES:
            sage: show(graphs(3))
            sage: show(list(graphs(3)))

Unless the request is specified, I'm all for closing it.

[13:19] <mabshoff> malb: what is your take on #370 ?
[13:19] <malb> it looks alright
[13:20] <mabshoff> If you also think it should be closed as fixed please do so.
