Witch - A keyboard solution for managing windows

Not sure I'm just missing this, but can you replace the regular Cmd-Tab with Witch?

My question would be if you can get Witch to use a different key sequence than Cmd-tab. I have PullTab installed so I can use Cmd-Tab in Illustrator... LiteSwitch allows you to use any of several different options; I'd be seriously tempted by Witch if it did the same.

@mnystedt: I'm afraid you cannot use [Command]-[Tab] as of now. Mac OS X reserves [Command]-[Tab] for its built-in application switcher. While there is a way to capture [Command]-[Tab], doing so requires tricking Mac OS X into believing that Witch is the Dock. (The Dock is responsible for Mac OS X's application switcher.) I'm still undecided as to whether it's a good idea to use this "hack".

@jiclark: You can use any other shortcut you like. Please have look at the "Triggers" tab in Witch's preference pane.
