On what Mac running what version of OS X?

IBook G4 running Tiger. Old System Preferences utility which included Control-Tab switching now defunct.
A Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion or Mountain Lion version might do it.

Just wondering, if I may ask...
What do you want CMD+tab to do?
Why do you want to only switch that function away from CMD to control?

Command-tab is a standard Mac OS (X) application-switcher (like Windows Alt-Tab but marginally better), but because I also use Windoze I try to make Mac shortcuts work differently. Control-tab is sufficiently different, not used elsewhere (some browsers use it to cycle tabs). I became used to it but can't now find a utilities package which includes it (MaxMenus had it but it's defunct), and I can't get QuickKeys to do this one.
I don't want to swap Control for Command, just rejig some of the standard shortcuts including Command-Tab.

Thanks - the nearest that will do what I'm looking for is Quicksilver, for which there is a 127-page manual ... and it's Leopard and later, it says. So I'll keep it in mind.

Thanks - I have Spark but don't think it does this one.
Repeat, I'm not looking to re-assign global key maps, just change (or perhaps add to) specific shortcuts.

PS re Quicksilver - there is a version for Tiger (and Leopard), it's Beta54 (and the manual is good for that version too).
Quicksilver (the software!) is at
