Yes, but I think such a system should be designed to be inproc from the
beginning. Basing it on a system designed primarily for IPC leads to
pain in the end in my experience (which OK is pretty limited).

Making it inproc all the way through means later on you can still pull
nifty tricks with assembly and code generation etc instead of
marshalling to a buffer and unmarshalling again, which is what CORBA,
DCOM and I guess DBUS do.
