University professor, but I like to think I know some useful things anyway. :)

comment Including parts of a LaTeX document in another document WITHOUT splitting up original document
Yeah, incorrect page numbering is a killer problem in a scientific publication, and more importantly page was the wrong granularity. Still, I could see there are times this would be very useful. But my university won't let me just paste the paper into my dissertation for some reason. :)

This is definitely an interesting possibility.

comment Including parts of a LaTeX document in another document WITHOUT splitting up original document
I have to confess that although the answers sounded like they might work, in the end I had to give in and just maintain two separate documents. My highest priority was getting the dissertation done so I could pass my defense. :) Merging with subversion worked surprisingly well in practice most of the time.

comment Best LaTeX-aware diff and merge tools for subversion
The diff part here sounds good. But it feels to me like this is only a partial answer. Unfortunately my collaborators are probably going to be working on the document simultaneously. If this is still the best answer in a few days I'll mark it accepted.

Unfortunately Beyond Compare is not free (starts at $30). For me this is a problem.

Your answer was very good, but since I had to choose just one I ended up with Willie's. Unfortunately I don't have enough rep to bump your answer either.
