And, it has to be much faster than doing the normal diff. It's not
necessary to actually diff the files - the server would simply need to
provide the requested information, *not* do the diff and extract the
information from that (I can do that myself in a GUI client, what's
important here is speed!).

This is needed, since there could be changes to the properties *and* the
