Let $W$ be a Weyl group. How to find reduced expression of the longest element $w_0 \in W$ in SageMath?

I can define

W = WeylGroup(["E", 6])

Then I got one reduced expression of $w_0$. But how to obtain all reduced expression of $w_0$? Thank you very much.

Like that

sage: W = WeylGroup(["A", 4])
sage: w0 = W.long_element()
sage: w0.reduced_words()

Tab-completion is your friend :<TAB>
