Add filtering by custom taxonomies to a post type. Note when registering the custom taxonomies 'query_var' should not be set to false. If so, this function won't work,
/**

Don't you get term count equal to zero any time?

@andretti1977 That's actually a good question. I didn't think about that when writing the gist, but I now added couple of checks to the code. I also realized the foreach loop was totally unnecessary.
