The compose key is good, at least when the goofy chars
are but a few. In my case they are three, or six if
you count the lower- and uppercase versions as
distinct - even so, they share they same compose key
and prefix so it is just the actual key that has to
have a specific case which is the "case" anyway!

The shortcuts seem/are bulky at first but soon enough
will enter the muscle memory/finger habits.

The advantage with the compose key solution is that
there is no switching between layouts - there is one
layout that works for everything normal, and one
compose key that works (always) for everything beyond
that. So there is no getting all confused and
frustrated switching the layout back and forth.

It is actually pretty good :)
