The default should be display (part of ImageMagick).  And that would
not be just for Linux, but any Unix-like system (which may be the only
types of systems where the default version of imagesc will work).
Perhaps xv should not even be mentioned now.  Is it very widely used
these days?

Is there a Debian package for the current version of imview?
