Camera as Color Meter?

OK all you technoids out there, is it possible to use a modern day camera as a color light meter? In my particular case I have a Panasonic GH1. It has all kinds of ways to set the color temp of the white balancing. Can I somehow use this to tell me the color temp of a light source?
