Hmm, with the newly designed Hoogle 4 you can do the search:

+Data /module

Which would give you that behaviour. It says only look for modules
(you can also do /type, /class etc) and +Data says only look inside
the Data namespace.

As it stands you'd have to specify a text string to search for as
well, but given this use case, I'll remove that restriction. I'll also
look into if there is anything else to make this kind of thing a bit
