[Haskell-cafe] lifting between two StateT monads

Hello!
I've just started learning Haskell and have a simple question regarding
monads. Please, don't blame me if it is too obvious (any RTFM links
are welcome).
Suppose, we have two data types, X and Y. X represent local state, Y --
global one. In some sense, X is contained in Y. For example, Y maybe (X,
Z) or [X] or Map Int X. Let's take that (as it is in my case)
Y = Map Int X
I have function that make some transormation of local state (X) and
having some other side effects.
f :: StateT X m a
where m is another monad, something like WriterT Log IO.
Now I want to convert it into function transorming global state, more
specifically it's n-th part. So, I want to combine n :: Int and f into
g :: StateT Y m a
where (Y ! n) is transormed via f, and other parts of Y are not touched.
How can this be done?
I've looked through StateT documentation and tutorial, but had not found
any function from StateT X to StateT Y where Y is not the same as X.
With best regards,
Alexander.
