I am not sure if this is what you want, but how about:

For python 2.4, try:
python -c "import sys; print sorted(sys.modules)"

For earlier pythons, use:
  python -c "import sys; nms = sys.modules.keys(); nms.sort(); print nms"
  python -c "import sys; print sys.modules.keys()"
if you don't care about order.
