Abbrevs are my first thought ... 

My second thought is a virtual keyboard and a shortcut to
enable it (say `C-h g' for "CHange to Greek" :)), that
keyboard will then take over the normal keyboard so if you
press 'd' a downcase delta will be inserted (and so on), and
either it will automatically go back to the normal keyboard at
that point after insertion, _or_ you'd have to do `C-h g'
again for it to return ...
