Personally, I would consider "objective arguments" to be controlled, repeatasble, studies with quantitative results. I've seen such studies about light-background-dark-foreground vs. dark-foreground- light-background, which is why I use the former now. I haven't seen such studies about line width, especially not with Python text as opposed to English text.
Personally, I would be amazed to see any significant difference between the two foreground/background combinations you list. ;-)
Well, if you put the foreground behind the background, you can't see it at all unless you turn the monitor around, and then all the letters are reversed.
