We have a 1900 farm house and have done a little replacing with drywall and a little saving of the plaster. Saving it is better! Tearing out old plaster is the dirtiest, dustiest, messiest job in old house restoration. If your plaster keys are holding onto your lath just fill the cracks. Its a lot like taping drywall. Wall board was introduced because it is more convenient for the builder not because its better. If you can't fix your plaster its much neater to cover it with very thin drywall than to tear out and start over. As for hanging pictures. . .picture rail molding lets you rearrange with out ever making a single hole in your wall.
