well, I found one of the oil leaks

While installing the alternator, I went to go hang my worklight on
one of the oil cooler lines. It moves when I bump it. "What the?"
I look up...this is the line that has been dripping at the fitting.
Reach up...it wiggles substantially side to side, and as I wiggle it,
a nice big drop of oil comes off the fitting. Loooovely. I reach up
and I'm able to turn it tight, finger tight, -quite- a bit.
-Yikes-. It's getting tightened soon as I figure out what tool will
work best, and soon as the car's off the ramps, I'm checking the oil
level again. I can imagine what could have happened if it had opened
up even more while I was going up to/at/coming back from the WDS.
It's not pretty...
