You're correct their is one loop. The one loop has what I'm going to refer to as sub-loops comming off of it (radiators that were added on).

As far as adding multible zones the house warms up pretty evenly and is comfortable.
The only thing I'm considering is makeing two loops, of rather one main loops and the kind of a sub-loop I described before for an attached apartment.. I'm contemplating installing a second boiler and that would make any future install easier. I'm hesitent to give him his own zone as I know he'll run the thermostat around 75 degrees and tack an extra $100 a month onto the gas bill

I havn't done any work yet but I now know I can use 1-1/4 copper, so yes I suppose that problem is solved.
The work itself is going to wait for the summer. The pipes are 80 years old, if they want to start breaking in the walls when I touch them I want it to happen when I don't need the heat.

Thanks to everyone for the help.
