Hmm, I thought you said you stopped worrying about what other people
thought?  ;-)  But seriously, just go ahead and post it, no one's gonna
laugh or anything.  No one's grading you here.  We have a whole range of
people, from amateurs with very little knowledge of linguistics to
people with PhD's.

Good enough reason.  "Gh" would work, but, as you said, you're wanting
to avoid digraphs, so that's out of the question.  Of course, if /g/
doesn't exist, "g" would work just as well.
