Dispatcher::addRouterName (   $routerName,

Add a router name.

NB: Routers will be called in the order that they have been added to the dispatcher. The first router that supports the request will be called. The last router should always be a "catch-all" router that supports all types of requests.

NB: Routers must be part of the core package to be accepted by this dispatcher implementation.

$routerNamestring a class name of a router to be given the chance to route the request. NB: These are class names and not instantiated objects. We'll use lazy instantiation to reduce the performance/memory impact to a minimum.
$shortcutstring a shortcut name for the router to be used for quick router instance retrieval.
