print_r(count($websitesCollection) . "\n");
foreach ($websitesCollection as $website => $value)
print_r(($storeCodeAsKey ? "Store Code:":"Store Id:") . $website . "\n");

If I will find out anything new about it or I will gain some theoretical knowledge then I will update this post with those revelations.
