Python Question

Tkinter Get List Of Default Colours

With Tkinter, there's a command to get a list of all installed fonts (

tkinter.font.families ()
). I was wondering if there was a similar command for the Tkinter colours.

I know there is a link that documents all of the colours (http://www.tcl.tk/man/tcl8.5/TkCmd/colors.htm), however, adding every single one of these to a list one at a time would be an awkward annoyance.
