Argument modification

A function that accepts a VLINK may modify that link if the link's target has been forwarded. The modified link refers to the new location of the object.

Not all calls to the Prospero library currently do this. When we take the time to revise the library, we will attempt to make this behavior consistent across all functions in the library that accept VLINKs and send Prospero protocol messages that inform them the link's target has been forwarded.
