#445748 by dww and Dave Reid: Add a hook_update_projects_alter() for modules that wish to do modify data in update status module.

* @{
* Alter the list of projects before fetching data and comparing versions.
* Most modules will never need to implement this hook. It is for advanced
* interaction with the update status module: mere mortals need not apply.
* The primary use-case for this hook is to add projects to the list, for
* example, to provide update status data on disabled modules and themes. A
* contributed module might want to hide projects from the list, for example,
* if there is a site-specific module that doesn't have any official releases,
* that module could remove itself from this list to avoid "No available
* releases found" warnings on the available updates report. In rare cases, a
* module might want to alter the data associated with a project already in
* the list.
* @param $projects
* Reference to an array of the projects installed on the system. This
* includes all the metadata documented in the comments below for each
* project (either module or theme) that is currently enabled. The array is
* initially populated inside update_get_projects() with the help of
* _update_process_info_list(), so look there for examples of how to
* populate the array with real values.
* @see update_get_projects()
* @see _update_process_info_list()
