    Virtually all of my traditional Chinese dictionaries are keyed to
    radical-stroke. Some of them have a stroke-only index at one end or
    the other, some don't.

    My experience is that radical-stroke is the predominant way of doing
    "dictionary" order. I don't know, however, how well that extrapolates
    to phone books or indices.
