Automating state change from the results of a query subscription

I want to be able to define a query that I can run on a regular basis like a subscription to a filter. I want to take all of the issues and change their state, like you can with the bulk change capability. I can do all of this manually in JIRA but I want to automate this process so the query runs at specified intervals and then the states of the issues returned from the query are updated automatically. Does anyone know how this can be accomplished?

That takes a filter, runs it, and then attempts to do something to each issue returned. The examples given are "comment" and "move through workflow" - you need the second (workflow move = status change)
