Default diff'ing msq files

I'm used to the diff'ing feature in hptuners (GM engine tuning software) which is tune-aware and has a few convenient ways of showing the difference between 2 tunes. Is there something similar for MSQ files? I've been using a XML text editor with a diff feature and it's just not the same because:

- The program has no concept of what the MSQ file contains since it's a dumb XML viewer.
- I can't stand reading raw XML files.

Anyone know of a good XML reader that can be used to diff the outputs or even better a MSQ aware reader that can do some sort of graphical diff?

I decided to write a really crappy perl script to do a simple diff. Hopefully someone will have pity after seeing my poor attempt and write something better. You need XML::Parser to get this to work and it is full of assumptions which will probably break the first time you run it.
