I can’t parse “transformers State monad”, but maybe it’s just me, or is
it missing a word, like “transformers of the State monad”, “State monad
transformers”?

Otherwise LGTM, thanks!

The way I understand it is: "transformers State monad" stands for the
transformer monad called StateT, itself a monad.  But I'll let you or
a native English speaker decide about the grammatical correctness of
the synopsis provided by the author :-)

Thanks,
Fede

“transformers” is a package providing monad transformers.  But even
after looking at the code I can’t quite make sense of the synopsis :)

It provides functions that take accessors and return State and
Read-Write-State monad transformers.
