Defining a custom "diff program" for Git is not hard -- see the
git-difftool manual [1].  The idea is that you set a bunch of the
difftool.docx.* configuration variables and then call
`git difftool --gui --tool docx <this> <that>`.
The rest is writing a script (or a full-blown program) that will be
called with two file names and then do something with them (say, pass
them somehow to LibreOffice so that it does diffing).
