Provide log messages when processes begin and end various state transitions
It would be helpful to have messages in the artdaq process log files that say "Starting transition blah" and "Done with transition blah", where blah is Start, Stop, Pause, Resume, and Shutdown.
It would be nice to have these messages in BR, EB, DL, and Dispatcher log files.
There is leftover code from earlier attempts to do this that can be updated and used.

I've committed changes to DataReceiverCore to provide this functionality for EBs, DLs and Dispatchers. I still need to change BoardReaderCore.
A special note: I kept this functionality under the control of the "verbose" FHiCL parameter, but I changed the default value of this flag to true, so that we get these messages by default. This seems like the right choice since it's really hard to interpret the log files when you don't know when Start, Stop, and other transitions are happening.
