Photoshop: Ability to sample anywhere with the Eye Dropper tool

I think it would be helpful to have the eye dropper tool be usable with other programs allowing you to use that color within the adobe software. Does anybody agree?

It's not trivial, because the OS behavior is to pass clicks on non-application windows to the other application.

But if you click in a document window and drag the eyedropper over the rest of the screen - it'll pick up colors from other apps (or the Photoshop UI).

If you half-size your LR window on your screen you can sample colors outside the LR window.
