Comment (by PStamatiou):

 While this code does work for me, I was hoping for a method of limiting
 tags in a tag cloud on a slightly different basis. By just limiting a tag
 cloud to say 20 tags, for use in a sidebar for example, it just takes out
 tags from the bottom regardless of their importance. I'm aware that they
 can be ordered asc/desc and by name/count, but I would like to see a way
 that retains the tag cloud appearance while limiting the number of tags.

 That is, perhaps another parameter, or just the logic to limit tags by not
 displaying ones that have very few posts associated with them and
 rescaling the remaining tags' sizes to still have the trademark "tag
 cloud" appearance

 crude mockup to illustrate my jargon:
