[avahi] Announce LinkLocal Adresses only?

Dear avahi developers,
we have remotely configured devices (they fetch changes to their network
config from a centralized location), if they can?t reach a certain
server for some time i?d like to add a link-local ip to their interface
by avahi-autoipd and start a webinterface where they can be reconfigured
by a local admin. I don?t want to remove the configured static ip from
the interface since i can?t reliably determine if the configuration is
wrong or the server can?t be reached for some other reason, so they are
supposed to keep trying to connect.
where Lennart says that "Avahi will take the first public IP address it
finds for each interface", but i can see (using avahi-daemon --debug or
tcpdump) that avahi publishes both IP addresses of the interface. This
leads to unreliable behaviour on the client side, which sometimes
resolves the hostname to the link-local address, but sometimes to the
statically configured IP address, which can?t be reached by the local
admin using a link-local address. Is there a way to only publich the
link-local address? I found nothing in the manpages, so i guess it can?t
be done, but thought i?d ask anyway...
