Hi All,

I want all of my controllers to register there respective URLs with
description. this data will be used in template to create dynamic HTML
controllers will register URLs at catalyst startup.

I have to store this data into variable (not in any file or database) which
will be accessible in all the controllers.
To get the registration work I have to write statement outside of all
controller methods to execute the same at the time of catalyst startup.

hope you guys can understand my requirement.
