Top Tags alternative design

IMHO, putting any of the standard borders around the tag cloud makes the page look too rigid. We use the boxes to organize and separate different kinds of content, but on this page there's only a single thing, so I think a lack of container isn't necessarily bad.

That said, here's some ways we could make the page a bit more interesting:

1.) Spread out tags vertically, they appear too cramped now. A line height of 36px seems about right.
2.) Add a breadcrumb on the title or an exit link in the top-right, so the page isn't a dead end.
3.) Instead of a solid border, give the tag cloud an airy, feathered border that fades into the background. This can be achieved fairly easily with moz-box-shadow, and actually looks pretty natural within the CL theme.

I've attached an example, created within the browser w/ Firebug. If this looks good, I can provide the necessary CSS.
I like it!
This page is pretty much impossible to find now; we don't need to improve it until we run out of other bugs.
