    No personal experience myself, but doesn't "WidgetLocker" let you chose what the external buttons do?

    I think you need root for that.

    Try WidgetLocker, no root needed.

    I only use it to change the lock bar skin and to display my music player controls, but it can do what you're asking as well (if I'm understanding you correctly).

    Widgetlocker will only be effective if you're phone is locked by the way. I had thought the OP wanted the action while the phone is not locked as well.
