"pacmd list-modules" works fine here so don't know what's up with your 
setup... maybe an old version?

You can also use "pactl list" which will include the modules plus a 
whole lot of other stuff in it's output. pactl uses the pulse protocol 
like any other client (i.e. connection to PULSE_SERVER env var etc. 
rather than just the local PA daemon) and it doesn't rely on 
module-protocol-cli which pacmd requires. So if it's a general purpose 
thing you're doing, I'd use pactl instead (even if you have to filter 
out the crud).
