If you put following in your .XCompose:

  <Shift_R> <o>  : odiaeresis
  <Shift_L> : BackSpace

you can enter ö by pressing and releasing the right Shift key, and then
pressing o, and you can create a backspace by pressing and releasing the
left Shift key.  Note that not all programs handle non-symbol keysyms
like BackSpace created from the compose mechanism, but emacs, for
example, does.
