don't think what?

if you keep using the same variables in all submethods you call from a 
method inside the class, why not make them attributes?

otherwise, using the **-form when *calling* the methods might work.  you 
can use the **-form in the functions to ignore arguments that you're not 
interested in.


     def __check(self, foo1, foo2, **extra):
         # use foo1 and foo2 here; ignore the rest
