I don't know if this helps, but it's what I use for Devanagari.  Of course, 
it's aimed at people familiar with Roman keyboards.

A bit tricky because we don't have that key anymore (but we could come
up with some other key combination to enable it). Also, are you
planning to use stickers or some other way to add the proper glyths to
the keyboard?

Happy to explore this with you further.
