Just the /etc directory could probably be done just by copying and
diffing. But I would like the rest of the filesystem too if possible.
3GB maybe...

There doesn't appear to be any obvious solutions, so I might just write
a script that uses rsync --dry-run to get a list of changed files, then
copy them over and diff them...
