Tagging an Application as a system module will prevent the application from displaying an icon. However, do note that it may still appear under the Application Switcher, if you wish to hide said application from the Application Switcher as well please refer to the following thread Hide Application Icon from Application Switcher.
Then lastly, the application will still appear under installed modules (via Advanced Options), and can still be edited, have permissions modified or removed via this interface.
Hope this helps to give you a big picture for hiding applications.

Yes, the user can uninstall the module from there.The only way to make a completely uninstallable, unnoticable application is to built it into the OS itself and release a custom OS update to the target audience. Or to create a custom installation/uninstallation manager that controls all install/uninstall events.
Thanks to this restriction the community is fairly safe against attackers, exploits, virus, malware etc, so it is important for such measures to be maintained for security reasons.
@simon_hain: Why spyware/malware/virus' ofcourse, we dont want users to know about them ;P hehe, but no, I also dont see a reason why anyone would ever want to hide there applications, I was recently also requested to create a "hidden" phone monitor, but no matter how you look at it, its spyware at the end of the day, If you want to be able to protect your application to only be changed by the "owner" of the application rather add a lock screen or something.
