Moving these non-logbook state changes into the LOGBOOK drawer is not
covered in the manual.  Just gave this problem a thought and will see
if I can provide a function that does the job.  Although there are
limitations.  Finding state changes without a note is doable.

| ^[ \t]*- State .+

If they have a note they end with "\\" and we know for certain that
everything up to a blank line ("\n\n") belongs to the state change.
But we cannot say if things below this blank line belong to the note
or not.
