Trying to get the hang of improving the look of icons on XfDesktop, not sure it really can be done without losing accessibility. Below is an example of dark font with white shadow so you can see how it could/would work.
(For all this you don't need compositing or anything, it's done with the gtk2-engine.)

Obviously the same thing could be done with white foreground color and dark shadow, but in the end it really depends on whether you use a dark or a bright wallpaper/background what will look/work better.
