Nice! I have already considered <ñ> or <ŋ> for /ŋ/ and <ñ> or <~> for
homorganic nasals. I think your choices are probably the best looking;
"teñki" looks a lot better than "te~ki". There's also the option of
letting <n> always stand for homorganic nasals before consonants and
for /n/ before vowels, if you conlang doesn't have minimal pairs that
cause ambiguity in this system.
