French symbols without azerty

So, sometimes I have to type some text in French. And I dislike AZERTY layout, it's too unfamiliar. So, what should I do? Right, to use altgr-intl US layout. To do this you just need to set XKB Variant to "altgr-intl" (something like this in hal policy file - /usr/local/etc/hal/fdi/policy/x11-input.fdi on my FreeBSD system):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
<match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.keyboard">
<merge key="input.x11_options.XkbModel" type="string"> pc105</merge>
<merge key="input.x11_options.XkbLayout" type="string">us,ru</merge>
<merge key="input.x11_options.XkbOptions" type="string">grp:rwin_toggle,grp_led:scroll</merge>
<merge key="input.x11_options.XkbVariant" type="string">altgr-intl,winkeys</merge>

Now, to type something with ^ , like û, you just type RightAlt+6 (^ symbol is there) and press u. To type è - RightAlt+` and e... Big list of shortcuts is here. And if you don't touch right alt this layout behaves just like basic us layout...
