I'll take Jake's idea one step further. Not exactly common knowledge, but Sachs made New Success brifters that look almost identical to Campy Ergo except for the branding. They were made to shift Shimano 8. Typically much cheaper than Ergos. I have a pair and can attest to their function. I believe you could even get a replacement disk to change from Shimano 8 to Campy 8 if you were so inclined.

Edit: Found a pic of mine before I threw them on a bike.
