Is there any tweak to bring back emblems in Nautilus?

I am trying to write myself a nautilus script. I need to change emblems of files in this script. I discovered how to do the same from here.

I however see that the changed emblems are not reflected in the nautilus browser until I reboot(I am going to presume that this means that a restart of nautilus is required). Is there I way I can do this any other way?

By other way I mean without restarting nautilus, like how the emblems are changed instantly when done through "right click -> Properties -> Emblems"?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@nitstorm, On second thoughts, I wish to not have the question closed. It is a valid question and useful too. I will flag your comment to the moderator. – Abhijith Mar 1 '12 at 10:48
There is an interesting script here with a method to do autorefresh - does this work for you? – fossfreedom Mar 1 '12 at 10:53

You can use nautilus -q to only restart nautilus.

I meant to ask "without restarting nautilus" – Abhijith Sep 6 '11 at 9:05
