Boiling out block

How does the group feel about boiling the block to clean out rust and cotton and walnut shells? I would expect that the cylinders would need to be honed, and the valve seats reground, and the top smoothed so the head gasket will seal, but what about everywhere else? Like the tappets galleries, the cam shaft bearing supports, etc.?

I'm afraid there might be damage everywhere.
