I am not concerned about performance, but I don't want the reverse-twist gear changing system.
You need to replace your rear derailleur with any "top normal" Shimano model. The numbers on your shifter will work backwards, "1" will be your fastest gear but it'll work fine other than that.

For whatever it's worth, I HATE those C-101 derailleurs. If it was my bike I'd be replacing it too.
