It would be a lot of work, and the best that could be achieved might be to
thin down the volume.
An example: For HTML files, the number of characters that change between
releases could be used as a surrogate for weighting changes as "minor" or
"major". New HTML files added to a library would be weighted heavily.
Averaging weights for a given library can then be used to generate a
message describing docs changes for that library.
