No, but it is a texlive option, so we depend on it. At this moment, it
seems unused ,
see texmf-dist/doc/web2c/web2c.pdf:
5.6 IPC and TEX
(If anyone uses this feature and needs documentation, write tex-k at tug.org.)
This functionality is available only if the ‘--enable-ipc’ option was
specified to
configure during installation of Web2c (see Chapter 2 [Installation], page
If you define IPC_DEBUG before compilation (e.g., with ‘make
TEX will print messages to standard error about its socket operations. This
may be helpful
if you are, well, debugging.

Of course, you can compile your own version of luatex , enable ipc and test
if it works for you.
