Cable adjusters are square. For decades now, bottom-bracket spindles have had square ends and cranks have had square holes. Seat-post clamps also have square holes and the clamp bolts have square necks.
And then you go to mount a chainring on a crank, and round sleeve nuts spin around in round holes.
It is possible to play tricks with lubrication, but really, isn't it about time that someone solved this problem for real?
Why didn't anyone think of this before? It's so simple! Square bolt holes, square-headed sleeve nuts. Finally, no more annoying slip and spin.
This changes everything!
