If she is going to redrywall anyway...

I agree, the existing rock is a goner.

Don't worry about saving the existing rock, you will only make yourself crazy. This is a great opportunity to upgrade your wiring, adding Cable TV, Telephone, Computer Network Cabling, and Home Theater or speaker wiring.

Rip the walls out all the way to the studs, upgrade your wiring, plumbing, insulation and vapor barriers, and rock from scratch. The problem with applying additional drywall to your walls is you won't be able to trim your doorways properly without a lot of extra mouldings.

Post back if you need more help.
