heat them up- a small butane torch will do the trick. it's more important to be sure you don't strip them- there is usually a thread lock substance holding them in there, and with aluminum or stainless if thread lubricant isn't used they can really seize in there. I would say heat them up, then get the appropriate driver (probably a 3/16 hex? and tap it a few times with a small hammer.. then twist your fricken arms off, man :)

I had that same problem, my friend wrecked my bike a while back and i had to replace the right handlebar because it was bent badly. The screw was stuck tight and i ended up stripping it. after trying everything imaginable, i finally took a hacksaw to the handlebar,( because it was bent anyway) and sawed it off. then i just slipped the new one on. but dont do this unless you are completly out of options and planning on replacing it anyways.
