Without in any way contradicting the good idea of the original suggestion, may I mention the following as worth trying with the existing facilities of the professional edition?
Firstly, draw a clockwise calligraphic line as you wish it to be, then join the end to the start by a series of straight lines such that there is no overlapping of lines along the way and such that a clockwise contour is produced. There is thus one contour.
Secondly, adjust the shape of the calligraphic line as you choose. There is still one contour.
Thirdly, use the Glyph Transformer and apply the Hollow transform. There are thus two contours.
Fourthly, join the two contours somewhere along the straight line parts. There is thus one contour.
Fifthly, delete points from the straight line parts so as to produce a calligraphic contour that, after a little adjustment at the ends, can be used to construct a calligraphic glyph.
