FlatpageFallbackMiddleware means view middleware is not applied

If flatpages are installed according to the docs (that is, using FlatpageFallbackMiddleware), any view middleware installed will not affect flatpages (because the flatpage view is not called in the usual fashion via URLconf).
It's not clear to me that this is a bug (it's perfectly logical once you realize what's happening), but it certainly can be a cause of confusing bugs ("why is this middleware I just installed not working on certain parts of my site?").
Perhaps it's just something to note in the flatpages docs? I'll put together a patch if someone can confirm that's the best solution here.
