#176 Password Expiration Interval

There has already been a request for cyclic expiration
of passwords (a 'Change in each month...' feature). I
suggest to use something like a 'Days to live' feature,
that exists in some other password database programs (I
attached a screenshot from the Whisper 32 freeware
password database program showing an implementation).
In that program the expiration date is automatically
computed based on the current date and a user-defined
expiration period.

I think this simple addition to the 'Add Entry' window
would be quite useful: many services use a xxx days
expiration interval, but it is very inconvenient to
calculate the exact date (month, day, day of week) when
those xxx days will be over.

Thanks!
