Disable update notification for individual plugins

Is there a way to disable update notifications for specific plugins?

As a plugin developer, I have some plugins installed on my personal site using the svn trunk version for testing, but the same plugins are available from the plugin site. In these cases WP considers the latest version to be the most recently published version and constantly tries to warn me that updates are available.

I still want to see notifications for updates on other plugins, but it’s anoying to constantly ignore the Updates (2) notice in the header!

For example if you don’t want Wordpress to show update notifications for akismet, you will do it like:

function filter_plugin_updates( $value ) {
    unset( $value->response['akismet/akismet.php'] );
    return $value;
}
add_filter( 'site_transient_update_plugins', 'filter_plugin_updates' );
