That might be an ideal solution. That's actually partly a bit how "us(intl)"
works, without the dead keys.
For example, RAlt + e = and RAlt + , = .
I am afraid that's the only two I can write though, so it would indeed be
much better if I could just add similar shortcuts on top of "us".

Any pointers on how to do this?
