     Type:  defect          |      Status:  new                   
 Priority:  low             |   Milestone:  2.3.1                 
Component:  General         |     Version:  2.3                   
 Severity:  minor           |    Keywords:  tags, tag cloud, array
 wp_tag_cloud('format=array'); will always return "Array" since the array
 is not returned but it merely attempts to "echo" the array (which in PHP
 will just output "Array"). I don't think that this is the intended

 I had thought that the purpose of the parameter "format=array" was to get
 an actual PHP array of all tags. I can get this tag array by using
 get_terms('post_tag', $args);

 I tried to slog through the code a little bit (wp-includes/category-
 template.php line 310 and on) but it didn't seem to handle the special
 case of not "echo"ing a result, but merely returning an array object.
