For most use case I can think of, I can only second Steven and Chris - 
if your functions are interchangeable then they should have a same API.

Now there's at least one use case I know where you need to dynamically 
select a function then build the right arguments set for it: when 
mapping urls to http request handler functions. There's a good example 
in Django's url to "view" mapping system.
