Panel buttons - manually editing .rc-s

I made couple of buttons for controlling xmms playback from the panel without having to focus the xmms main window.
Those are just simple launchers with xmms -b, xmms -t and xmms -f, respectively.

Now I want the tooltip of certain button to display the current song.
I made a shell script (using program qxmms) to fetch the current track data and to change the ~/.config/xfce4/panel/launcher-<launcher id>.rc file at song change.
But I'm not getting any results. It seems that, whenever you close the GUI for configuring a certain launcher, that launcher gets reloaded.
How do I make my, manually changed .rc file to get reloaded to panel without having to restart the panel?

You can't, the launcher does not monitor the rc file changes, so it won't updates its configuration.
