Can we get a frequency count for users following / tracking tags?

Since My Mefi allows users to filter by tags, it seems like a useful feature to know how popular tags are. We already have the tag cloud, but I'm more curious about the middle-range of tags. Not that I plan to spam the most popular tags, but knowing for example, if "ubuntu" is a more followed tag than just "linux" would be useful when deciding how to tag a post about an Ubuntu announcement or something.
I realize there's probably some privacy concerns about the data, but I think a few heuristics could resolve that (ie, drop all tags below a threshold from the count).
