Pitch bend isn't really the same as pitch shift. Pitch shift needs to 
implemented by the synth engine or soundcard in this instance - and it _is_ 
missing in many cases. It should be possible to assign the pitchbend 
controller to a different hardware controller, but this involves getting your 
hands dirty. There is no nice UI for this - and really there should be.

Please no-one consider this a fully formed feature request (yet) - I shall 
work on it, however. ;)
