If you attempted this, you would have realized that the result is no more
useful than full text of the GR for determining the specific changes.
(nearly every line is changed, and word-wrapped differently as well).

Neither the CFVs nor http://www.debian.org/vote/2004/vote_003 provided a
meaningful account of the changes between the previous Social Contract and
the proposed one.  This would have been very helpful to those of us who
don't read yet another mailing list, since weeks passed between the RFD mail
(March 24th) and the First Call for votes (April 11th).
