There is a function on arcpy called ListVersions. Here's online help for it.

    >>> print (arcpy.ListVersions('bigiron.sde'))
    [u'BILLY.VersionOne', u'JOE.2B8E86', u'S.DEFAULT']

Just what I needed, thanks. I swear I searched on there first, but I must have missed that. –  ian May 9 '13 at 19:15
