It probably makes sense to be a separate API, the reasoning being that the summarize info would have to be communicated differently than what a normal diff does. Either it would return an array of the items that have been modified, or maybe it would send notifications that would have to be trapped. Either way, it would be something really different from what diff does now.

Ideally, I'd probably like the API to return an array of some sort of Java objects that describe the item and the type of change etc.
