If those four different presentation forms have different Unicode
mapping, you might want to use IME rather than a xkb method. A IME
method is, you will get international characters while inputting via
standard en keyboard. A xkb method is something like a piple, which will
convert what you input directly into corresponding Unicode characters.
The widely used IME platform nowadays are iiimf and scim.
Personally, I don't know whether it is easy or difficult writing a new
IM under iiimf. AFAIK, with all the language materials provided, you
can write a new IM under scim within two days.
