The point was to show how to use a room number instead of ch->in_room. I
wasn't trying to do exactly what they wanted, mostly because I forgot
exactly what they wanted halfway through it.  So I just did the room number
conversion.  Now do the same for the rest of the look functions and you
don't have to yank people around just to do so.
