Can you change the keyboard shortcuts in a program?

    So, I'm wondering if it is possible to change the keyboard shortcuts in different programs? I have a Logitech MX Revolution and using ControllerMate I have it set up so the thumb button can change my tabs in Safari, the keyboard shortcut for that being apple+shift+] key or apple+shift+[ key. I wanted to get it so when I'm in Adium I can change between the chat tabs, but the shortcut for that is just apple+left arrow or apple+right arrow.

    Is it possible to either change the shortcuts in Adium or Safari, so they are both the same?

    Doesn't ControllerMate allow for application-specific button mapping?

    If it does, I have no idea how to do it. I did find through in system preferences, you can go to keyboard and add a new shortcut, and switch safari tot he same as adium.
