I second this, though I think it's easy (but admittedly ugly) for wordpress
or any other to do something like ?cat=13&cleartext=/tagName

Careful with this: already having accents is not a piece of cake, but you
will have to match
      <a rel="tag" href=".../%E3t%E3">&eacute;t&eacute;</a>
and other niceties (and consider the charset)
You'll also have the case where the link is on an image...
