Depending on how the changes are made, yes it probably is. It could be
quite hard to ignore minor changes caused by different export software,
etc, however. Determining what differences are significant in terms of
content changes might not be at all easy, especially as some people care
about some types of formatting & white spaces changes and others don't, etc.

I'm not aware of anything, but others may well be.

It might be possible to use PoDoFo to do something like this if you're
handy with C++, but it would probably be far from trivial, especially as
PoDoFo doesn't provide a content stream parser yet.
