    Anyway, we've been thinking of actually moving all of the nautilus 
    preferences to a capplet. I think that would further the vision that 
    Nautilus is just a part of the whole desktop, and is not a separate 
    program/product. I think moving font configuration to a common place is 
    also a step in the right direction.

    I'm not sure you want the same font there. Especially not for the desktop. 

Yea, unless you use a solid color background, you probably want a bold
font on the desktop icon labels to increase clarity.

Speaking of that, what do you think of  the
shadow-on-unselected-icon-labels -thing andersca was playing with? I
think it would be a good idea. For the record, OSX does not even change
the icon label color depending on the wallpaper, it just has white
labels with a drop shadow.

Now having a proper dropshadow would be utterly cool, but I understand
it might be a bit hard to implement, so just having an offset black text
under the white label might be enough. It really improves the icon
labels readability on a photograph wallpaper for example.
