What about common diff/patch commands?
1. 'gunzip' two .gramps files generated after two sessions (ex: yesterday and today). //work with copies for testing//
$ diff -u yesterday.gramps today.gramps > diff.patch
$ patch yesterday.gramps diff.patch # this should re-generate 'today.gramps' ! it was a sample...
OK, not the nicer way, but I suppose one of the faster which will also let the user control of their data.
If need, we could also try to generate a simple 'person selector' with an existing Gramps XML file? Once selected, a process will look at related references (records), then will generate a quick Gramps XML for an new import. I suppose it is easy to make something like that outside of gramps with some scripts (GNU tools, perl, python, CLI, etc ...)
