Is that because you have some other input method active?  Because
otherwise, the number of keystrokes to toggle input method, type the
character, then toggle again is the same as with C-x 8.

C-x 8 is just another input method these days.  Except that it
doesn't behave like one, and that causes confusion among users and
makes the documentation more difficult to write.

If it is a frequent problem with the Euro that people need to insert
them when they have a non-Latin input method active, perhaps we should
add the Euro to some non-Latin input methods as well.

I suspect that other characters will follow.

If there another functionality that does the same and doesn't require
more keystrokes, will you consider switching?
