Photoshop: How do I add an intermediate color stop, with the color of the position that's already there?

I'd like the gradient stop I'm adding to assume the colour that's already there. Is there a way to do so that I overlooked?

If not: I'll change it later, the gradient can start out with my fore- and background colour, so I won't be needing those while I'm editing it.

Noel Carboni made a better image than me,

Still, here's mine <a

Many thanks!

In Photoshop CC 2014: option/alt click in the color or transparency stop area where you want to sample a color from the gradient, and a new stop will be inserted matching the current color/opacity at that point.
