Better than that: enabling the misc:typo XKB option, along with any of
the options of the lv3:* group, puts many useful characters directly
on the keyboard, by adding two more character layers (in addition to
normal and Shift layers).

There are tools (based on xkbprint) that show the resulting layout.
GNOME 2 used to make it reasonably discoverable; I don’t know about
