In the deprecated implementation of generic views (as functions) there was the extra_context list to pass extra arguments to the template.
Since 1.3 and the new implementation of generic views as classes doing the same need the creation of a new customized class which inherits from the ListView class as documented here (in the extra_context chapter): https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/generic-views-migration/#the-context-data-for-object-list-views
It's not pythonic since the new implementation recquire more knowledge of the underlying code, and basicaly, more code to do the same! So it's a regression from my point of view.
It would be really simple to solve it keeping classes implementation by creating a new property as list type. So when instanciate the ListView class we would be able to give the extra variables as arguments.
Really need little modification to the existing code!
