      /// expiration per CacheEntry.
      /// Each TValue object must thus offer the following method:
      ///    
      ///    const Poco::Timestamp& getExpiration() const;
      ///    
      /// which returns the absolute timepoint when the entry will be invalidated.
      /// Accessing an object will NOT update this absolute expire timepoint.
      /// You can use the Poco::ExpirationDecorator to add the getExpiration
      /// method to values that do not have a getExpiration function.
      ///
      /// Be careful when using an UniqueExpireCache. A cache is often used
      /// like cache.has(x) followed by cache.get x). Note that it could happen
      /// that the "has" call works, then the current execution thread gets descheduled, time passes,
      /// the entry gets invalid, thus leading to an empty SharedPtr being returned 
      /// when "get" is invoked.
