I've had an idea in my head about creating a Wordpress Multisite environment that would have Plugins along with them that would not only have "default" settings, but be able to update each blog's plugin options based on a "master" site. That way, instead of having to change settings through every site - you'd be able to just change it in one spot.

Now I've seen http://snippets.davejamesmiller.com/code/php/wordpress/automatically-enable-plugins-in-new-wordpress-multisite-blogs which can handle activating and setting specific plugin settings - but this wouldn't take care of any ongoing sync between the websites. There'd be times when certain settings shouldn't be brought over/synced, for things like an API key for Akismet for example. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

AFAIK, you will have to loop over all the blogs and set the plugin option. – Hameedullah Khan Jan 21 '12 at 5:49

Thanks! - Looks like YD WPMU Sitewide Options may be a good fit moving forward. – Zach Jan 23 '12 at 17:01
