Blogger real-time stats was just recently introduced. How can I exclude my own visits from counting in these statistics?

I know it is possible to set a cookie to exclude self traffic in Google Analytics. Is something similar possible with Blogger real-time stats?

Sweet! Blogger in Draft just implemented a feature to exclude your own visits. It does not seam to work, yet, though.

Update: This cookie does not seem to hold it's value and work in IE (8). I realize it is just a "draft" feature, but I'm considering using the HOSTS file instead.

Update 2: Even when the cookie maintains it's value in non-IE browsers, the visits are still tracked. This new "draft" feature still has some kinks...

There is a new "Don't track your own pageviews" link in the real-time stats tab:
