[Thunar-dev] thunar extension to reload current folder emblems

I'm writting an extension for thunar. In the end, based on an external 
event I change the emblem for a file (via setting the corresponding GVFS 
attribute). The problem is that thunar won't notice that and I need to 
reload it in order to see the new emblems for files in the current 
folder. Is there a way to notify thunar of the changes of attributes in 
a file? I've tried to reset times (touch -r file file). While this 
works, this also notifies all apps that the file has changed which is 
quite annoying in case you are editing a text file.
