Right now, color picking works like this: "color is selected on click release"

Here is a suggestion. which would remove the need for radius to sample and 
might make it more usefull for artists: the user press and hold the mouse 
button, then the colour get continuously mixed with the colour on the canvas, 
until the user release the mouse.

So basically, as long as the user click and release, it is the same behaviour 
as now. But if he wants some kind of radius to sample, he just have to keep 
the button down and move his mouse pointer.
