Other options the GUI makes available for compose keys are: Caps Lock, either 
CTRL, Alt, or Win key, Pause, PrnScr, or greater than/less than.  Most of these,
along with several two-key combinations, are also available for layout switching.
I expect you'll be able to find something that suits.

Good luck with the other problems.
