Thanks, but I'm not sure if you got my comment right.
I'm not sure if the tool works or not, I was wondering how the all thing  
works since I would expect respec to generate a link like "diff with the  
previous version" at the top of the document. But I don't see any such a  
link. Is it supposed to work like this? Do I need to add some more  
settings?
