That's what I do. Here is part of my frontscript:

on tabKey
   if controlkey() = "down" then
     if the tool = "pointer tool"
     then choose browse tool
     else choose pointer tool
   else pass tabKey
end tabKey

This lets me control-tab to change tools. I never could get used to the 
Cmd-9/0 thing because it requires the wrong hand.
