A codebase can end up with a bunch of unused modules one way or another. Identifying unused/installed modules is tough, but identifying unused/disabled modules is pretty easy.

Modules and their status exist in the system table of Drupal. It's simple enough to query for disabled modules, but that will return results of modules which may have already been removed from the codebase.
