I doubt that this would be useful in general. Actually I can only
imagine workflows where I would not want the color-picker to affect
the tool opacity. When doing retouching you usually set the brush
opacity to some lower value in order to carefully apply some color
where needed. While doing this you frequently pick colors from other
places in the image. In most cases these places are opaque but you
definitely don't want the brush opacity to change to 100%. You want to
pick up the color, not the alpha value.
