[Matplotlib-users] easily accessing the default color cycle list

With the new color cycle, it's no longer super easy for me to manually
set plotting colors (that still conform to the new default colors)
without a cheat sheet.
Recently I've been doing:
cols = rcParams['axes.prop_cycle'].by_key()['color']
to get the list. This is something that I cannot remember and have
search through old code to find every time.
Is there an easier way to access this list? Something like:
from matplotlib.colors import color_cycle
cols = color_cycle('default')
would be quite nice. Maybe something like this already exists?
