Another solution that I haven't heard might be for you to use a demand heater on the cold water supply to the shower, not just one to the existing gas water heater... That way, the cold water that is being mixed at the shower head is not quite so cold and it wouldn't need as much hot water to get it to a comfortable temperature... At the very least, a demand heater on both the supply to the hot water heater and one on the cold water supply to the shower combined with increasing the temperature setting on the existing hot water heater should work...
