Rear derailleur bolt stripped

Hey guys and gals on my real derailleur the bolt circled is starting to strip out. This is where the shifter cable attaches. Will I have to get a whole new derailleur or can this bolt be popped off and replaced?

Many bike shops will keep a few around to make such repairs. I had to have one replaced on a Shimano 105 rear derailluer when I layed my bike on its side. My LBS took one off of a worn out rear derailluer, and worked just fine until I needed to replace the whole derailluer.
