i think really it needs redoing.  the reason for SVG is so that there are no
bitmaps which cannot be edited.

the main thing is, moving and adjusting bitmaps is awful.

those images are bitmap based.  moving things around i literally had to cut out
a block, put it in, and then fuzz over the edges.  this clearly wastes time and
looks a mess.  and is unclear.

> Should the gates be hollow/outline or filled/solid-colour?

hollow seems to be standard.  just use the wikimedia SVGs, scale them as
necessary (but keep size consistent throughout)   in some diagrams the outline
of the gate is coloured, matching the wires that go in and out, and it is
really clear and easy to track "read dependencies" for example because
everything associated with that is in green.
