Are you working on a large project but dislike how many objects you have to weed through in the hierarchy window? You can create editor scripts that change the objects Object.hideFlags property to hide or show the object in the hierarchy window.

var item = Selection.activeGameObject;
if ((item.hideFlags & HideFlags.HideInHierarchy) == HideFlags.HideInHierarchy)
{
                item.hideFlags = item.hideFlags ^ HideFlags.HideInHierarchy;
                item.active = !item.active;
                item.active = !item.active;
}

Notice that item.active = !item.active is specified twice. Currently in unity 3.5 you need those 2 lines of code for the game object to hide and show properly in the hierarchy window.
