You're confused about how identity uses the callback. It does NOT just
give you the list of identities once upon connect, but it keeps you
up-to-date as long as the connection is up.  So you don't need to
re-start the application or connection to reflect identity changes: you
will always have the latest status if you process the various cb-events
(there are arguments that tell you about add/remove/rename/etc.).
