How did you discover that option for Show?

I find no entry for "ShrinkWrap" in the Documentation Center, see no 
mention of that option value on the page for Show. On the Graphics3D ref 
page, the option Method is listed in the More Information section, but 
that Method option is not listed in the Options section of Examples.

And of course the ref page for Method is essentially useless in such a 
case. It's long been a documentation lacuna that there are no "inverse 
references" for such options as Method that apply to multiple functions 
-- from the general option such as Method back to all the functions for 
which it's an option, along with some information as to what settings 
are allowed for each such function (at least in cases where within the 
target function page itself the settings are not all listed).
