Diff support for PDF files

TortoiseSVN has great support for providing diffs of MS Word and MS Excel
files. I'm hoping to get some feedback about what solutions others might
have used to obtain support for diff'ing PDF files using TSVN.

Acrobat 9 has a "Compare Documents" tool, but it appears that Adobe Reader
does not have this functionality. Has anyone generated a script that uses
Acrobat as the external diff tool for the purpose of comparing PDF
documents? Or perhaps a script that uses any of the many PDF
viewers/editors as the diff tool?

Of the external diff tools listed in the TortoiseSVN documentation, only
Araxis [1] appears to support diff'ing PDF files.

Searching the web, I came across this third party tool [2] that claims to
support the diff of MS Office, Open Office, and PDF files. I am somewhat
hesitant to install this program on my machine, but will probably try it out
in a VM. Has anyone else out there used this tool?

Thank you for your time,
- Ryan
