As a source line number.  Finding that requires source specials.

Something like srcltx.sty (a manual implementation of source specials)
would be needed, and it would need to set anchors for every source
line (every time an anchor for a particular line is placed, also
anchors for all preceding lines up to the last anchor get placed).

Alternatively, just jumping to the page by trying to use some label
mechanisms is conceivable (and/or some additional output routine code
that registers the source/page correlation, even though it would tend
to be off a bit).
