Currently the only way (other than with a script) to copy / paste the color of a shape layer is by double clicking, triple click the hex color, cmd+c, enter to close - then double click other shape layer, triple click hex color, cmd+v, enter to close.

I've worked around it with a keyboard maestro recorded action but it would be great to have something native that allows you to copy paste shape colors through a shortcut.

With CS6, you can now copy and paste shape attributes including fill color, either by context/right clicking on a shape:

Or through the shape tool options picker:
