Need to update option from another plugin [RESOLVED]

For various reasons, I find myself in the position of needing to update options read by get_option() and written by update_option() in the context of a feed add-on.
How do I accomplish this?

I thought I’d override get_plugin_settings() and update_plugin_settings(), but that doesn’t seem possible.


In the meantime, I’m going to accept the duplicate values. This means the current plugin options will remain. When the options for this feed add-on change, it will update the plugin options too.

Solved by treating the new plugin settings as shadows of the original plugin settings.
When is_admin() is true, write the shadowed values from the working ones. on admin page load.
On save, write the working values from the shadowed ones.
The functions get_previous_settings(), get_posted_settings(), get_current_settings() are required for this to work.
