I made a change to my site to add a toggle collapse on the filters in the admin page. Is this something we'd like in Django by default?

Sure, it was proposed in wiki:DjangoDesign#Collapsefiltersinchangelistsidebar:

Filter options take of a lot of vertical space in the changelist sidebar. This makes it difficult to use fields with lots of options as filters, or to use more than a few fields as filters. This could be solved by adding an option to display filters with more than a specified number of options as a select element instead of in a list. (WM)

#21183 is a related ticket about collapsing the entire sidebar.
