I gave it a shot, see attached SVG file. I re-created the figure using

The attached SVG file is an "Optimized SVG", where Inkscape stripped as
much useless info as possible and it should be as portable as possible.
Some care is required to make it render the same everywhere, which I did
by turning some objects into pure paths (like the arrows and '{', '}').
The text is still text, and should look similar enough with most
Monospace fonts. The advantage of it still being text is reduced size,
and also being able to edit it with a plain text editor should only
small details need updating (like variable naming). If shapes need
editing, it can be done with the help of Inkscape itself.

Also, kernel-doc has proper support for dealing with SVG:

In case you want to use my SVG as-is, you need to add:
