If you allow Shift+AltGr (like e.g. the Finnish-SĂˇmi keyboard), there is
still enough room left.

Look at the â€žEuropatastaturâ€ś (an â€śEuropean keyboardâ€ť based on the German
standard layout) at http://www.europatastatur.de .
It enables you to type the capital Ăź by Shift+AltGr+S (the next version
probably will move that letter to the Shift+AltGr+Ăź position where everybody
seems to expect it) but contains also the quotes and similar characters
required for correct typography.
Using that keyboard layout, you can type (besides the capital Ăź) without
any compromises (hoping this will pacify your anger):
