I don't. The colorpicker ist quite handy to determine the average color in some area and a square is much more natural to handle. Also for a circle to be somewhat usable you'd have to take the in/out coverage of the pixels under the radius into account or you'll get disturbing results for small sizes.
i would tend to agree, if i want an average for an area i will usually be after a square anyway, however, it would be good to have a checkbox to switch between circular and "classic" behaviour, i don't know how much of a concern this is but surely you should be keeping inline with what the installed userbase are used to and are happy working with more than pandering to the Photo$hop audience...
