This seems like it should be simple enough to do, but I can't figure it out.

How do you get a button to look like it is pressed only when it has been pressed, and then unpressed when another button is selected.

Seems to me there should be a simple OnClick command that says If A is pressed, then make A looked pressed but not B. If B is pressed, then make B look pressed but not A. I can sort of get the effect with mouseover but it doesn't stay.  Any ideas?

  Mouseover[Button["Option A", Print[10!]], 
   Button["Option A", Print[10!], Appearance -> "Pressed"]],
  Mouseover[Button["Option B", Print[10!]], 
   Button["Option B", Print[10!], Appearance -> "Pressed"]]
