I'm using this code in `wish` to query widget for available options:

And it shows this widget has `-inactiveselectbackground` option. 
However, it doesn't have `-inactiveselectforeground` as I was thinking 
in previous patch.

 > .t configure -inactiveselectbackground
-inactiveselectbackground inactiveSelectBackground Foreground #c3c3c3 
#c3c3c3

But I have no idea how to get this colors from ttk::style. Looking at 
awdark theme, it set's inactiveselectbackground in function 
setTextColors, which is used on text widget directly. And we cannot use 
it here.

I think calculating that gray color from current selection bg is too 
much work for just one color.

We can just set inactiveSelectBackground to some neutral gray color 
like #707070 or #909090 which will work fine with both dark and light 
themes.

And, because we're using "widgetDefault" priority - themes can override 
this, when they want to explicitly set this color.
