[PyKDE] retrieve Highlight colour value

I've tried things like:


and variations - and completely different too of course.

I need to set a widgets background and foreground colour to values retrieved 
from the current users theme/prefs.

So far my attempts have only netted me a single integer number for the 
highlight or texthighlight - I assume these int are a palette entry? but I 
don't know how to map that to a value I can feed to qcolor.

e.g. I'd like to change the background of a text widget to be the current 
colour of a scroll bar (where I don't know the colour at runtime, but want it 
from the user's theme).
