Hi Bryan,
The "show" keyword specifies that the alignment should be shown
with Multalign Viewer, but there is no keyword that says a file should
be written out.  When you are doing things interactively, you can then 
File...Save As (in the Multalign Viewer menu) to save a file.  However,
in your case it is the python script from Eric that tells chimera to
save a file.

You probably saw this already, but here is the mmaker man page listing
the keywords:

Not sure I'm answering your question, though...
