I've been thinking already that xv is pretty much a tool of the past. I've 
circumnavigated this problem on my Linux box by sym-linking /usr/local/xv 
to /usr/bin/display (of ImageMagick). Maybe it would be more appropriate 
for "moder times" to replace xv with display within PIL for show() on UN*X 

Just a thought,
