Ideas for quick release windshield wiper arms?

Posting this picture in the thread about comments people have made about (or left on) the car got a discussion going about removing windshield wipers.

Specifically, I mentioned I was looking for ideas for a "quick release" method that didn't require tools and wouldn't eventually wreck the splines on the shaft that the arm attaches to.

Note placement under a wiperless arm.
