As I've been able to confirm this enhancement request I am marking as:

New (confirmed)
Enhancement (not really a bug, just you want additional functionality out of paintbrush)
Medium (default, don't see a reason to change it in this case)

Apparently Joel forgot to set this to enhancement.

Thanks to bug 103705, I learned that the format brush has three different modes of behaviour. So after selecting the source:

1) character (word boundary) based format -- by clicking on the target;
2) character & paragraph formatting -- by <Ctrl>+clicking on the target;
3) paragraph only formatting -- by <Ctrl><Shift>+clicking on the target.

Ctrl-clicking copies the bullet type just fine in my test. Closing as WFM.
