afaik it is possible, though the gui might not get updated accordingly.
what do you gain from that? it would break your patch everytime you send
your object another code-snippet (with other iolets)

yes: do not use "graphical" objects; all "normal" (non-graphical)
objects will be invisible on the parent.
if your object has to be graphical, just don't put it into the red
rectangle of the child-patch, and you won't see it in the parent.
there is not much use of a graphical object which you cannot see. (there
are uses for such objects, but i guess you don't want to reinvent the
whell for that...)
