I still don't see why you want that. The fact that the section list is
in the client or in the server is orthogonal to the fact that we
maintain a list of modules. If you have a list of mapped views in the
server you can simplify the module list a bit by making each module
point to the view instead of the backing file, but you still need a
module list to send debugger events and do toolhelp snapshots.

You could of course hide the module list inside the section list by
adding some magic flags to the section descriptor, but all it changes
is that you then need to walk the whole section list to retrieve the
modules; I don't really see the point.
