I just shift to the lowest gear prior to removing the wheel but most flats I have fixed I just turned the bike over and left the wheel on.

Overall it's not *that* big of a pain. One challenge I have faced is with fenders you need to leave enough clearance if you have horizontal dropouts...the wheel needs to slide far enough back to be able to clear the back of the dropout to be removed.
