WikiSh provides a {(diff ...)} markup, but it's not going to be mature
enough to do what you're hoping for.

But a few months ago someone posted a script on this list that they used to
move page text into text files for shell-tool processing.  I just took a
quick look around to try to find it and couldn't lay hands on it, but
perhaps the original poster could repost?  Sorry for my inability to find
it...  It'd be a worthwhile thing to have on the pmwiki site as some kind of
administrative tool recipe...
