FWIW, "a list entry in `load-path'" sounds to me like it
could easily be misinterpreted as a _list-valued_ entry
in the list `load-path'.  (Of course, nil is a list value.)

I think it would be clearer to just talk about "an element
of `load-path'" having the value nil.

I think that's a more typical way of talking about an
element of a list: call it an element of the list, not
a list entry in the list.
