1. You can locally derive an input method from greek-ibycus4, and
replace the entries for letter + oxia with letter with tonos (or we
can make that change in emacs)

2. Same, but we allow for entering both variants, so that eg

i' => iota with oxia
i; => iota with tonos (this is how eg greek-postfix does it)

3. You change input methods betweend greek-ibycus4 and greek postfix,
enter the character + tonos using i;, then switch back

4. Last resort: enter the required character directly using

C-x 8 RET 3af
or
C-x 8 RET GREEK SMALL LETTER IOTA WITH TONOS

Iʼd probably lean towards [2], but a purist might says that weʼre
polluting an input method intended for classical greek with a 'modern'
set of characters. OTOH Unicode seems to say that we should be using
the tonos variants anyway.
