You can use plain get and put to interact with the outer state, and you
have to apply lift to use the inner state. This problem, which for almost
any other combination of transformers is solved by mtl's web of MonadState
instances, is an example of why the topic of "extensible effects" is so
hot. You are basically asking to add, and later subtract, a new state
"effect". Barring rewriting your original state type as a product that
includes the new one, there isn't really a neat way of doing this.
