If you don't like that construct, perhaps this one is nicer:

from twisted.internet.defer import maybeDeferred

def getCachedResult(cache, key):
   def _readItem(item):
       if item.obsolete():
           return None
       return item.read()

   def _gotResult(item):
       def _release(ign):
           return item

       d = maybeDeferred(_readItem, item)
       return d

   def _ebNotFound(f):
       return None

   return cache.open(key).addCallbacks(_gotResult, _ebNotFound)
