Well, I'll tell ya, its exactly the same--- two key-strokes, believe it 
or not.

Because the character selector is up on the gui (for me, far left) and 
the two strokes are {mouse click the Π } and {mouse click the insert}; 
rather than {p} {i} .  There is of course a brief time-lag because my 
right hand has to move the pointing device and my hand is off the 
keyboard momentarily --  that is not a problem though, on my track pad 
notebook.
