I have noticed these args not even working well in some cases in integrate
ode method (due to the fortran wrapper code not handling them). Eg vode.pyf
double precision intent(hide) :: rpar
While the ode class does contain:
"""Set extra parameters for user-supplied function f."""
self.f_params = args
I tend to use class functions, which have access to other class
