I'd suggest to use

 thunarx_file_info_add_emblem(file_info, emblem_name)
 thunarx_file_info_remove_emblem(file_info, emblem_name)


Thunar will have to take care of updating the display items (i.e. via a signal, tho that could cause too much noise in certain situations) whenever emblems are added/removed (this should not schedule a relayout, just a redraw on the views). Plugins like the VCS plugins would then determine the appropriate emblems in an asynchronous fashion (i.e. separate process/thread) and attach the emblems via a main thread idle callback.
