New Module: tag_cloud_html5 - a non-Flash 3D tag cloud (both sidebar block and whole cloud page)

NEW: VERSION 7 - new embed feature for putting tag cloud in other places on website! (and minor bug fixes).
Attached is my new HTML5-compliant tag cloud module. It functions a non-Flash replacement for both 'tag_cloud' and 'tag_cloud_page' modules, with some extra features added. The 'tags' module is still required.
Documentation is available at http://codex.gallery2.org/Gallery3:Modules:tag_cloud_html5.
This module uses a modified version of TagCanvas, a non-flash, HTML5-compliant jQuery plugin. It also uses excanvas to maintain compatibility with pre-9.0 Internet Explorer. This means that it's 100% compliant with all modern browsers, including all iOS devices and Internet Explorer 8.
Similar to older modules:
As mentioned above, I've modified TagCanvas. In particular, I added a new physics-based motion model, some new parameters, and some bug fixes which are not a part of the original package as this writing (2012/06/08).
The JS file included in the module is therefore called jquery.tagcanvas.mod.min.js, and has been minified and is therefore largely incomprehensible. I've also included the non-minified version for reference.
Let me know what you think. Thanks!
