Proporzione Divina, by fellow mathematician blazar, was the inspiration for this.  (In fact I mentioned here that I'd be doing an obfuscation, or "Offuscamento", based on the Golden Ratio; this is the fulfilment of that intent).

The original version (with recursive, inscribed golden rectangles) was fairly well "golfed" down, but wasn't visually stimulating enough, so I added the spirals.  They really spiced up the output, but significantly increased the total character count.  Oh, well...

The program needs Tk to work.  Ironically, one feature of the program was created by "accident" -- I forgot the Tk switch to createArc to change the arc's color, and guessed at -fill.  That wasn't it, but the resulting effect was quite pleasing, so I left it in.

(Thanks to blazar for teaching me the Italian word for "obfuscation".)

    [Corion]: hippo: Yes, but I'm not sure that it's even worth the effort of implementing it at all...
    [Corion]: You'll only ever need that option if you have a long-running query whose results are not cached by your DB already, and in those cases I presume that the programmer will want to maintain the temporary tables themselves - I wouldn't know when to drop ...
    [Corion]: ... the temporary tables, and also don't have a good idea on how to create unique table names for them
    [hippo]: OIC. In that case leave it out but invite feature requests and see if any of the users suggest it. :-)
    [Corion]: Talking about this makes me realize that it's likely only a half useful idea. But it still would be convenient to have as an option...
    [Corion]: hippo: Hmmm - yeah, I could document it and wait for code implementing that option to show up ;-D
