I don't think it's complicated. Just divide the left way to 10 segments,
and the right one to 7 segments. Connect the corresponding dots with lines.
That's it.

Of course, this can not be done with a dumb renderer. A dumb renderer can
just fill the area with steps in the approximately right direction. An even
dumber renderer can just render the two ways, like they have been doing

Mapping this as two steps is not entirely right. What if that staircase had
a name?
