Some thoughts:  First of all, would you mind moving the actual script
to wwwdocs/bin (AFAICs it currently resides in wwwdocs/htdocs where we
only ought to have documents).

Second, in my experience improving automation gradually has worked out
quite well.

In this case, I'd suggest to start with a nightly cronjob that automatically
performs the comparison and generates a new HTML page. If and only if
the contents of the new pages differs from the previous one, you receive
an e-mail with the patch (and a properly generated ChangeLog entry).
