"FileList registeredFileReaderClasses" redirects to FileServices

The class FileList no longer keeps a file registry. It redirects to FileServices
FileReaderRegistry := nil. "wipe it out"
gives back the direct access to the OrderedCollection which is hold in the class variable FileReaderRegistry ("FileServices registeredFileReaderClasses") of FileServices.
So registering and unregistering reader classes with FileList should not be done any-more but directly with FileServices. FileServices was introducted in Squeak 3.9 and replaces the earlier registration mechanism with FileList. As of Squeak 5.1 quite a number of methods are still referring to FileList though.
