I was actually thinking along the same lines. I often do something
similar with Git's documentation. When you are tweaking the formatting
or an asciidoc knob, it is useful to diff the rendered output to check
that the changes had the effect you wanted.

I usually have done so by hand, but I actually wonder if "git difftool"
could be used as a wrapper for this (I suspect not, because you have to
deal with the whole build tree, not just individual blobs).
