It's painful to relate, but we first did paragraph and Image and then image and
flowables. Logically we should do flowables and flowables so you have a list of
flowables wrapping round another list of flowables; fairly hard to implement
when things like paragraphs don't have a width.

The point is that at present ImageFlowables don't have a caption. It shouldn't
be too hard to make a flowable that behaves mostly like an ImageFlowable, but
also has a caption.
