Some do, but maintaining existing shortcuts is good for when I'm actually using the keyboard (these 'per-app' shortcuts are meant for the additional buttons on my drawing tablet). I'd only use the application options for shortcuts which really annoy me, like how some use Ctrl-Y to re-do and some use Ctrl-Shift-Z. Not that all apps support re-assigning such basic shortcuts anyway....

Before I try to hack together a solution, are there any existing apps/frameworks which allow for the same key/button to do something different based on the currently focused app (in X)?
My intended use-case is to use the additional buttons on my drawing
to do various functions, but depending on the current app. So in Gimp
would do one thing, in Libreoffice another, in Inkscape another.
Don't your applications have an option to customize the shortcuts?
