Filtering records in related lists (Contacts) - Hints please

Hi All,

I'm sorry if this is a newbie question (I am new so...)

Under accounts, there is a related list of contacts. This is great, however, I would like to filter these records based on one of the fields in Contacts (say these with status__c = "Active")

Preferable this filter would be permanent, if impossible, I would like a drop down menu under "related lists" to activate the filter.

Please give me any hints you can.

Unfortunately related lists are not filterable right now.  Some people make custom buttons or links that point to reports that are filtered, though.
Any way I can make a view based on a list?
(since a view is inline editable, and column-click-sortable?)

In Visualforce you can expose a list view, so you could make a little Visualforce component with that list view and expose it on a page, but you can't base a related list on a list view right now (or by any means filter it).
