ch->in_room is the *real* number of the room the person is in.  The
virtual number can be got using world[ch->in_room].number.  Most of
the structures concerning such things (and defines) are in structs.h.
Also, a lot of world stuff is in db.c, and spread throughout the files.  To make a suggestion, think, "Where else have I
seen the virtual number displayed?"  Of course, if you turned on
roomflags as an immortal, you'd see virtual numbers there.  So, the
look code (act.informative.c) might be a good place to look.  Or,
perhaps the stat command.  Or even the exits command.

Although, it's rather questionable if you really want your players
to see parts of the game's underlying mechanics like that.  Though,
I suppose it's up to you.
