Module support?

#51

And why is a "controller" in one of my modules not a MVC controller?

I think the basic problem here is that the distinction doesn't exist in most of the current HMVC extensions. The original HMVC pattern is defined as a user interface pattern (as was the original MVC pattern), so an HMVC controller would only receive requests from the application, which, in our case, would be an application-level controller (not the router). The HMVC controllers themselves, though, would not be aware of the hierarchy, except for any hierarchy the controller itself creates to handle its request.

In other words, what you have done is closer to an application of the original HMVC pattern to CodeIgniter, while most of the previous popular HMVC extensions have applied the HMVC pattern at the same level that the MVC pattern is applied in CodeIgniter itself. However, your HMVC extension doesn't isolate itself to the user interface layer, either, it just isolates itself from the handling of requests from the router.

So, while your module's controller is an MVC controller in the sense that it serves in the role of controller for an MVC triad, it doesn't take on the role of a controller in CodeIgniter's MVC framework. We could run into a similar problem if we discussed the difference between a controller which extends CI_Controller and lives in any of our applications and the roles played by the index.php file and CodeIgniter itself as a Front Controller for our application. On the other hand, at least Front Controller is a separate pattern from MVC, so maybe we could add a level of confusion by saying that the normal (MVC) controller we previously referred to will now act as a Front Controller to your HMVC modules.
