Not the real one -- the strokes are stored as outlines basically; in
case of composite fonts like mingli these outlines do overlap.  The
order of outlines is completely unrelated to the order of strokes a
person would write the characters.

I fear that FreeType isn't very helpful here.  Years ago I've seen
special Chinese fonts (for educational purposes IIRC) which do what
you want.  Unfortunately, I can't remember how this program was
called.  Maybe a search in the internet gives you more information.
