I'm thinking some type of rotating switch that takes a strait slot screw driver. You just give it a half turn and the mag falls out.
Such a rotating switch already exists, and it typically only takes a quarter-turn to operate; it's called a Dzus (pronounced like "Zeus") fastener. They're commonly used to attach body panels to aircraft and race cars. They're designed to be inherently and positively self-tightening, so a Dzus-type fastener on a magazine wouldn't necessarily loosen under recoil.
FWIW the takedown stock screw on my Winchester Model 69 has a rounded slot that accommodates a penny.

That's pretty nifty!
Who makes that?
