I don't know of such a field, what I do know is that some TrueType files 
provide bitmaps at several sizes.  In this case, it's not clear that you 
wnat to disable anti-aliasing at that size, but FreeType will pick the 
prerendered bitmaps instead of outlines if you turn anti-aliasing off for 
those sizes.

I don't currently expose the list of bitmap sizes for scalable fonts; I 
think I could make this work if it would be useful though.
