.el files in the userdir are being put in the load-path #126

The .el files in ~/.emacs.d// are automatically loaded at the startup.
Is there any use of also putting them in the load-path?

For example, the file tex.el would "win" over the AuCTeX-mode's tex.el and break the TeX support.

The main use would probably be easily reloading them after editing.

after the patch emacs complains that "mapc: Cannot open load file" any file placed in the esk-user-dir

The convention that I've used in my personal emacs config (not ESK-based) is to have all of my settings files be named [PACKAGE]-settings.el. That way there is never any naming conflict.
