replacing faucet stem/outside bibb

My outside faucet has a cracked stem. I've got one more shot at finding a matching stem for the easy fix, if not I believe I am faced with replacing the entire bibb (~10").

Here's my dilemma, the outside wall is stucco, the inside is a room that I just completed gutting/refinishing 2 weeks ago and really don't want to cut into the drywall (Murphy was hanging out at my house this weekend).

Any other options besides hacking into the wall?

A picture would really help out here. If you are not sure how to get a picture on here, ask me.

I have the same situation, only my pipe is embedded in concrete. I have heard of some sort of sleeve product that plumbers can insert from the exposed area up into the damaged pipe that basically creates a new pipe inside the broken pipe, thereby eliminating the necessity of destroying all of the concrete/asphalt/stucco around the damaged portion of pipe. Anyone know about this?
