> This is a Map decorator which passively evicts expired keys once their expiry time has been reached.
> When putting a key-value pair in the map, this decorator calls expiryTime(key, value), passing the key and the value as parameters, and uses the returned value as the expiry time for that key.
> When getting the value for a key, its expiry time is checked, and if it's greater than the current time, the value is returned. Otherwise, the key is removed from the decorated map, and null is returned.
> Doing so, there's no need to have a separate, active thread (hence the name 'passive') to check expiry times - the check is performed on demand.
