The nasty SQL is
- Get all terms ordered by usage count desc for this vocabulary. This is 
"Popular" terms and might be further limited by user.
- Get all terms ordered by usage count desc for this vocabulary that 
appear along side this term on nodes. This is related terms for this 

I think the rest of it is not too bad. Even with a few thousand terms on 
a few tens of thousands nodes. I suspect that some work ought to be done 
on term_data and term_node indexes.
