[wp-hackers] Plugin Update

I'm curious ...
Is it possible for a plugin developer to build in the ability for users of
the plugin to get updates that are hosted somewhere OTHER THAN
wordpress.org/extent/plugins ???

I'm developing a plugin, and to be honest, I don't love the fact that if I
want to offer automatic updates for it, I have to do so through wp.org.  I'd
really prefer to NOT willingly hand over absolute control of the updates to
my plugin to wp.org.

So has anyone tried this?  Would it be possible? (without modifying the
core, of course)
