Allow Tools to be hotkeyed to numbers instead of only A-Z

I have a gaming mouse with buttons 1-12 (the razer naga). it would be extremely useful to be able to hotkey my favorite tools to this numpad. However, Photoshop doesn't allow you to hotkey onto numbers, just A-Z. I could download another program that would bypass this feature, however, I'd prefer to avoid the extra steps and extra programming. It would be slicker to be able to do this in Photoshop.

Photoshop already uses the number keys for shortcuts to set opacity and flow on the painting tools.

if you want to program actions or keystrokes to all those buttons on your mouse, you should definitely be using the software which comes with the mouse to do so. I'm quite certain you can apply anything you want to those buttons, not just #'s 1-12...
