Default Text Compare Info stats in text report

I'm using a script to perform a folder compare and then output to text:

folder-report layout:side-by-side options:display-all output-to:myreport.txt

Question: is there any way to include line info stats within my report? This info is the type of info displayed in the GUI under "Session/Text Compare Info". For each file, I simply need the total number of difference lines. For example, in the GUI, the information might look like this:

193 same line(s)
5 important left orphan line(s)
1 important right orphan line(s)
15 important difference line(s)

The stat I need is 21 (sum of the non-same lines) although having all of the info above within the report would work as well.

The text-report command can give you the number of lines different.

load c:\folder1 c:\folder2
expand all
select all.files
text-report layout:summary output-to:summary.txt
