Why isn't the GearWrench 85202 Quadbox Doublebox Ratcheting Wrench 
that you already found the perfect answer?  Also, if you break the 
nut free with a normal box wrench can't you switch to a regular 
gearwrench for the tedious part?  The nut comes away from the flange 
obstruction as you remove it, doesn't it, improving the grip with 
each successive turn?
