Being able to get simple output for tagging - analysis like 'top 10 values of x tag' or such would be massive to help editors autocomplete tag information and highlight tags that are less recommended.

This has unknown performance implications; maybe it could be naively implemented with rails counters, or it might require some more strong magic.

I really think this needs to be done outside the code code - it will be far too expensive to do it in the main database.

You could talk to the three hundred people that have implemented things like this before instead of duplicating their work.

That's what I'm doing, let's act and talk like nice people.

Nowadays taginfo is much more mature and "established" than it was when this issue was open.

Perhaps it could be closed?
