The basic operation underlying 'SturdyRef.getRcvr()'.

getRcvr only works when we're onTheAir.
- A list of places to try to find the vat
- The vat from which the object reference should be obtained
- The SwissNumber of the desired object
- Optional object for holding onto a Remote reference via whoever we got it from long enough to fetch our own Remote reference via this lookup.
