The CacheResolver internal cache can be initialized with beginning values. Unlike cache entries added later, these initial entries will never be timed out or removed.

Changed the constructor to pass the initial entries through cacheResult instead of just assigning the dictionary.

The original unit test (test_lookup) passes in an empty record ([], [], []) which would originally crash the cacheResult function. I wasn't sure if I could just remove the old test, so I made it assume a TTL of 0 when there are no entries in the payload.

Thanks for the patch, looks good, with two minor issues:

  1. Extra whitespace at end of lines.
  2. A comment explaining why time elapsed of 40 is good enough to expire the record in the new test would be helpful.

I didn't realise the interface involves passing in absolute timestamps, which is pretty terrible. So I also suggest deprecating passing in cache to the constructor. That can be done in a separate ticket, though. So unless I hear from you this weekend with new patch, I will just commit this one doing the above minor tweaks myself, and open a new ticket for the deprecation.
