As a personal opinion, I would like to see that in fpdoc. For example 
introducing a checksum field, for each documented procedure.
Then you could always get a list of modified, since last documentation 

Obviously it be nice if the checksum was not sensitive to changes in 
whitespace only.

It would not show you a diff, of what was changed, but that can be found 
via svn and co (Maybe another field, indicating which revision a file 
had, at the time of documenting....
