How many posts are we talking here?
Whilst your proposed selection would work, it does sound like a lot of
processing to ensure that the terms are kept in sync..
My method would be:
Generate tag cloud
- Are we on a category view?
- No: Generate as normal
- Yes: Filter the terms:
- We want Tags which are attached to <list of posts in category>
You'd have to add some caching to that, and theres a good chance you'd
have to filter some SQL there for best performance.
I've done something similar (intersections of terms) for navigational
elements of a custom taxonomy, ie. Site has multiple sections, and a set
of navigational elements to drill down, In the drill down, you only want
elements selectable which the section of the site has available
