Well that is very nice indeed. I often wonder how people do this with
with a non-German keyboard layout. I have been using the somewhat
clumsy but workable method using default bindings:

C-q M-D -> Ä
C-q M-d -> ä
C-q M-V -> Ö
C-q M-v -> ö
C-q M-\ -> Ü
C-q M-| -> ü
C-q M-_ -> ß

I suppose this is laughable, I will check out the methods you
suggest. The former reminds me of LaTeX, but the latter requires less
typing (no Shift key to get the "). I imagine the instructions for the
package also tell how to get the Ess-Zett sign.
