XPP: Is it possible to compare Lsyslib\_xy_sys specs using the diffstyle.pl tool?

Want to compare Lsyslib Xymacro (xy) specs for two different XPP versions, XPP 8.4 and XPP 9.x for example. Is there a way of doing that via diffstyle tool/utility?
The diffstyle.pl tool's GUI is not set up for diffing the xy_sys spec because the user must pick "two different" specs (of the same type) to diff, i.e. a spec at the JOB level versus one in a Style library, or a spec in two different Style libraries.
It is not expected that there are "two" versions of the _xy_sys spec to diff.
To diff two versions of the _xy_sys spec, use sdedit -aout and compare the resulting ascii files with a differencing tool such as WinMerge or Notepad++ with Compare plugin.
