For this particular metric, I usually run the two versions through a beautifier with standard settings, then diff the output of that.

But that regexp handles only C++ comments.  I don't know of a way to
recognize /* ... [text containing newlines] ... */.  Possibly another
diff utility has that options (xxdiff, tkdiff?).

You could write an awk or perl script to filter the multiline comments
out, save the output to a file, then diff those files. I, however,
consider comments to be equally (or even more) important to non- comments
in source code, and don't understand the use case.
