Shortly after SimpleListFilter landed in , there were talks on IRC with jezdez, carljm and apollo13 about allowing filter lookups to be based on the available data. Taking the DecadeBornListFilter example from the doc (http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/contrib/admin/#django.contrib.admin.ModelAdmin.list_filter), you might want to only display the lookups for the decades where people were actually born in. This requires the lookups() method to have access to the ModelAdmin's queryset, somehow.
I'm attaching a patch with a suggested implementation.
