I'm a remove & replace kinda guy. If you start in a hidden location, like behind a toilet or similar, you can usually get it out w/o beating it up too bad. Pull the nails thru the back, and use a small scrap piece of plywood to pry off of. The cuts won't change and when finished, will look like new. While its off, why not repaint it too.

edit: carefully cut the paint at the top at the drywall/plaster to relieve it and you're less likely to rip paint off the wall.
