Is there any way I can remap Cmd to be Ctrl for individual applications or Windows on OSX?

I'm trying to work out a way to do this for VirtualBox as I keep using the wrong keys to copy and paste between OSX and Windows running in VirtualBox.

Products like VMWare or Parallels have this feature built in.

It seems like something Virtual Box should be able to do through it's guest additions.
