Ah, sorry, I was under the impression that you were calling the function 
with "test_labels" and "extra_tests" as keyword arguments.  You can 
solve the immediate problem by omitting the "=test_labels" bit:

   return super().build_suite(test_labels, *args, **kwargs)

assuming that "test_labels" is the first positional parameter.  If it 
isn't, you've got trouble anyway :-) and you'll need to do some more 
involved parameter handling.
