The 'expires_in' option for set(), add() and replace() allow the values 'now' and 'never'. But these values are not available for the default 'expires_in' at construction. It would be good if these options were consistent. Perhaps do the translation at the 'CHI::Types::Duration' type coercion so that it is available anywhere the option is available.

Well to be exact, 'now' is a shortcut for (expires_in => 0) and 'never' is a shortcut for (expires_at => CHI_Max_Time). So it wouldn't make sense for either of these to be a value for expires_in. Also, 'never' is already the default for a set, if you don't specify otherwise. I can appreciate the desire for consistency, but every change has its risks and in this case, IMO, the benefit is so minor as to make it not worth the cost...
