[wp-hackers] get_option for an element in an array

Hi all,

In a plugin I'm working on, the option settings are saved as an array. I
normally use something like this to extract a specific setting within the

$myOptions = get_option('my_plugin_settings');
echo $myOptions['specific_setting'];

Is there a way of directly retrieving the specific setting within the array
without having to retrieve the entire contents of the array first?  Maybe
this doesn't matter too much, but what if the array contains a lot of
settings and data (thinking of performance)?

Thanks in advance.
