Topic: Map monad state

I use the monads from coq-ext-lib and I am stuck at a probably pretty easy problem.
I have two types, Foo and Bar, where Bar is a record with a field foo : Foo.

I have a "stateful" operation useFoo : state Foo nat and want to write an operation useBar : state Bar nat that does nothing but call useFoo. However, I can't seem to figure out how to transform useFoo so that it can be used in useBar. I assume I would like some function that just maps these two states like mapState {A B C} : (A -> B) -> state A C -> state B C, but couldn't find one. But probably there is an even easier solution?

There is no function of that type. Best to write what you need specifically for Foo and Bar. In the general case you need a lens between A and B ((B -> A) * (B -> A -> B)).
