There is Edit -> Track changes -> Compare document. First I would check
if the result on the desktop is good enough for your purposes. If so,
you can send that uno command from your "viewer" (it won't be a viewer
anymore :-) ), then paintTile() will provide you with the compared view.

You need to check if the relevant uno command works in a non-interactive
way -- the convention at many places is that if you send a command
without parameters, then it's interactive, but if you pass enough
arguments, then it's not. Obviously for the LibreOfficeKit use-case you
want the non-interactive case. If the uno command is currently
unconditionally interactive, then patches are welcome to make it
conditionally non-interactive (by adding new parameters to have enough
information without an interaction).
