Well Russian is Greek to me (or more correctly Russian!)
So Ive no clue about ergonomics

So let me talk of which input methods I use -- devanagari and tex.
I have devanagari-itrans set up in emacs as default (other) input method
So Ctrl-\ (ie 1½ keystrokes) puts emacs into devanagari mode

For tex Ive to type the keystroke for invoking
'set-input-method'
then spell out the input method (there seem to be hundreds)
RET

Considering that I use tex much more than devanagari I guess I should 
switch the default to tex
