Is it possible to crawl for SDEs based on a server instance?

This question comes from a couple places.
There are several threads about automating SDE compression, and good python examples on how to get started too.
To my understanding, the ListWorkspaces functions can find SDEs in a work space (in this case Database Connections). However, what I want is something similar to the DA walk function that discovers workspaces, except I want it to discover all possible database connections associated with a server instance (assuming I could deal with the UN/PW concerns). I know I could create database connections, if I had the SDE names, but I am sure I have found anything that enables you to list them in python. Is this something that requires ArcObjects? Is there just some function or step I am missing related to the DB connections?

 

Thanks in advance Data Management Community.
