There are *two* different parts of this!

The ASCII is this:

The pic source, for which I use nroff-mode, is this:

Re-doing it with another tool does not really
count as "how can Org mode help me complete the
task". If it can't, that's fine. It doesn't
disqualify Org mode as a good IDE for other
purposes. Actually I think not a lot of people
do drawings with pic - it is rather for this
kind of figures:

But in an indirect way this shows the built-in
shortcoming that is inherent in all IDEs,
which is they only work with what people
thought is useful.

The Emacs buffer and shell tools work for
everything, including, as this example shows,
ideas that that uses stuff that weren't even
intented for that idea!

So because it is on a lower level, very limited
in itself, interestingly, this doesn't limit
the user and he/she can take it to any level
he/she wishes. If he/she has the ability to do
so, of course ;)
