These monads are present in ghc >= 4.06, in -package lang, modules:

The combination of state and output can be done as one of these:
    WriterT w (State s)
    StateT s (Writer w)
    RWS () w s
where w is the type of output and must be a monoid (e.g. a list)
and s is the type of state.

> data ResultM r a = RM (r -> (r,a))

This is isomorphic to MonadState.State.
