Not that this is the same, but do you know Pixie from the development 
tools? It has the ability to "lock" the view and then one can click the 
magnified pixels to see the RGB/HSV value.

It also has a "copy color to clipboard". Although what it does is place 
the Objective-C code to create the corresponding NSColor object onto 
the clipboard (as a string).

Speaking of which, is there any program which actually put a real color 
on the clipboard? For beta 6 I've added support for dropping colors 
onto TM and wanted to do the same for pasting, but I have yet to find a 
program which actually store colors on the normal clipboard.
