 See #3219.

 Just like we had with #2952, in order for multiblog and multinetwork to
 work correctly, we'll need to be able to filter where global settings are

 wpmuguru has suggested bp_get_option() and bp_update_option type wrappers,
 with the logic set internally.
 https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3219#comment:10 I wish there
 were a way to do this that was more in line with what we did with usermeta
 #2952, where only the meta keys are filtered. But because on multisite the
 default behavior is to store things in site options, that's not possible.

 To be honest, I don't really like that BP stores settings using
 update_site_option(). I don't see what benefit we get from having this
 additional logic. Unfortunately, we probably have to keep it that way for
 reasons of backward compatibility.

 jjj and DJPaul, what's your view on introducing bp_get_option() and
 bp_update_option() wrappers?
