[wp-hackers] Overriding bulk upgrading

Good morning hackers,

Has anyone had experience with overriding the bulk upgrader? 
Specifically, I'm looking to override the process for a few select 
plugins and execute my own instead.

 From what I've seen so far, you essentially have to filter on something 
like admin_init and remove the plugins from the GET variable, before 
running your own bulk upgrader after the normal one. There are 
approximately zero filters in the bulk upgrader that I can use, without 
resorting to something like pre_option_*/pre_transient_*, which still 
doesn't give me enough control.

I'll be filing a bug on Trac to add more filters, but I need a backwards 
compatible solution.
