from Tkinter import *
root = Tk()
l = Listbox(root)
l.pack()
l.insert('end',"Hello")
l.itemconfig(0,bg='blue')
l.itemconfig(0,fg='red')

That works on Python 2.2. Older versions (pre-2.1, maybe?)
didn't implement itemconfig for listboxes. That's easily
fixed by editing Tkinter.py and copying the definition
of the itemconfig method from Canvas to Listbox, IIRC.
