Besides my "angriff" there also is a fine example by Miller somewhat
hidden in the docs at 7.stuff/synth/1.poly.synth.pd

Miller also updated the html-manual in 0.35-test29 to include some
reference material on graph on parent. 

GOP it simply a see-through feature of the GUI objects in an abstraction, 
that gets activated when you right-click on the abstractions background 
surface and set "graph on parent" to "On" in its Properties.

After that you can see the GUIs in the abstraction from the parent
patch that uses this abstraction. Some fiddling with the abstraction's
dimensions in the parent patch is probably necessary to get the GUI
sizes right.
