It would be good to have a simple way to do this.

I have done this in the past with an Autoload that calls a globalsub like 

     $Vend::Expire = time() + (86400 * 14);  # 2 weeks

$Vend::Expire is already designed to handle this, but there's no 
configuration directive for setting it. Should we consider having the 
directive set that instead of a new variable?
