Nothing fancy: we adapt the object to (names changed to clarify the
example) IPreferredLocations to get back a list ordered by how preferred
the locations are (from most-preferred to least), we then simply iterate
over the list (it's always short) until we find the first place the
object is visible, and use it.

The location ordering is specified by the user (more or less, there are details
I'm leaving out).
