SVN Book diff idea

It would be nice to have SVN book versions on the website that have a differing portions of the text in blue for changes, and green for new additions and red for now obsolete parts.

It would make re-reading the book for a new version much easier for old hands, you could immediately spot everything you need to reconsider.

So, if I upgrade from 1.6 to 1.7, I would like to have the normal 1.7 book, the 1.7/1.6 'blue/green' version and the 1.6/1.7 'red' version.

(blue & green might not be possible to automate, but even just the blue version would be very useful, or perhaps it's even possible to have this all in one version.)
