I changed P.drawOn so that if (P.height < hI)
image and paragraph begin in the same line.

(Example output: http://www.lux.de/div/test2.pdf)

So I'm only left with the problem how to let more than one paragraph flow
around the image.

How would a special frame help me here? One Frame on the right for the
Image and two text frames (left and below the Image)?
