user_passes_test should transfer view_func parameters to test_func

In some case, the test is dependant from view_func parameters.
For example : check and the user_id parameter to allow users to edit only themselves (and not be able to edit other just by changing the user_id)

Hi, thanks for the suggestion. My feedback:

1) Your patch does not seem to be against trunk.

2) This would break compatibility with all code that provided a test_func which did not accept *args and **kwargs, which is the normal way to write the test_func.

3) The test could also be dependent on other things from the request, as well as *args and **kwargs. But the name of the decorator is 'user_passes_test' i.e. it checks something about the user. As such, the decorator does its job well.

So, if you want a decorator that does this, you can easily write your own, and that doesn't have any compatibility issues.

For these reasons, number 2 especially, I'm closing as WONTFIX.
