once i have this "diesel in oil" problem sorted, i may go for a remap, but then you don't know how much better off you'd be compared to the cost of the remap

When you say this, what do you mean?
This is the min issue for fouled oil - diesel DOES get into oil, hence the need for oil changes, greater detergents, greater suspension or more regular changes (i do mine every 6 months as its all doable without jacking the car).

Are you doing short trips - if so expected
Have you had codes read - as to why youre runnign rich
compression test (for piston rings)
Full service (DIY is fine just change you filters, all of them)
Fuel injectors - run some Seafoam through it
