In the example you showed, a func-args-producer was passed in a func- 
args-consumer function.
I was presuming that this would generalize to multiple arguments, but  
wanted to make that an explicit point. One test might need a power  
interface and a communications interface and ... (typically about  
three or four such wirings up for the more complex tests)...
