I have Swedish /r/ as [r\] ~  ~ [r] too (roughly in that
order of frequency), but don't ask me for my distribution any
more these days. It seems [r\] has crept in from somewhere
and is gaining ground from the other two. OTOH I *never* have
[z`] for /r/ as many people from the general direction of
Stockholm have. Where are you from originally, Daniel?
For some reason I have [r`] for /l/ after labials and only there.
This sure isn't a common trait where I come from.
