I'm sure there is is a good way, but I don't know it. (I don't use such chars
much anymore.)

If someone doesn't offer a good way (which I doubt), then you can at least do
what I used to do:

If there is no good way currently (which I also doubt), then perhaps someone
will code something up.

When I used to do this a lot, I found it handy to have commands that do it for
one or more words (`unaccent-word') and for the region (`unaccent-region'). I
bind those to M-" and C-x ", respectively.
