Their manuals doesn't mention anything, it seems.  The internet
suggests that there might be between memoir and wrapfig, but I didn't
look into it as I don't know much about memoir.

Note the package loading order might matter.

Alternative implementation exists, but they are of course not
supported by Org.  Would they be in conflict?  I doubt it.
