That doesn't seem like an efficient way to implement a # entries in
category count. Unfortunately, doing it right will require a Java code

The right way is probably to add a method to WeblogManager, something like this:
   WeblogManager.getEntryCount(WeblogCategory cat, boolean recursive)

Then you'd need to expose that to templates, which you could do via
the Weblog object.
   Weblog.getEntryCount(WeblogCategory cat, boolean recursive)

You'd also need to add that same method to the WeblogWrapper.

If you are really interested file a patch, or at least an RFE in JIRA.
Somebody else might pick it up.
