Dear Tom-Erik,

we introduced at SUNBELT in Vancouver a method for comparing such 
differences.
We applied the Levenstein (or Edit-Distance) to compare different networks.

May be, this could be a solution for your problem.

If you are interested, I provide a .pdf version of our handout on my 
homepage:

If you have any questions, please mail to me personally.
Best wishes
Christian Stegbauer
