It would be very helpful if every plot/image function had at least one
accompanying image to demonstrate what the function actually does.

In English, we say "A picture is worth a thousand words".  And it is true that
it is often very difficult to document in text the output of a function, but
quite easy to show it.

As an example, the text for the jet colormap is.

This colormap ranges from dark blue through blue, cyan, green, yellow, red, to
dark red.

I'm not sure what that would look like, but the image from

rgbplot (jet, "composite")

is quite clear.
