[avahi] Avahi-browse without caching

I'm currently using

avahi-browse -t --all

to find the mDNS-capable devices that I'm looking for. But if they are 
disconnected after one run, the still show up in the result list.

The manpage only shows an option to only show results from the cache but 
not the other way round.

And the only way that I've found to reload avahi-daemons's cache is to 
restart it which requires root priviliges and I don't want to need them.

So, is there a way to either tell avahi-browse to not show cached 
results or to reload the cache without needing root privileges?
