Yes, that is what I was thinking (but did not want to type on the
little on-screen keyboard of my phone...) when I suggested graphviz:
dot could be a good intermediate language.

It is indeed specific but I think there would be some interest in what
you manage to concoct so please post it here!  

If I were to have time to do this right now, I would probably use awk
to convert a state transition table to a dot graph representation but
only because I'm very comfortable with awk and much less so with emacs

And the ease will depend on the type of transition table you have as
the starting point, of course...

As an aside, when it comes to actually generating a diagram, I would
in practive typically use tikz due to the quality of the graphs that
can be achieved.  However, it may be harder to do a table \to tikz
translation automatically.
