Do I understand correctly that you are talking about "real" 
inter-Process communication and not inter-Tread-Communication within the 
same project ? (IMHO, this would require completely different paradigms.)

I understand that IPC is done with non-Lazarus projects in mind. Hence 
it is done to be used "straight forward"  independent of the Lazarus 
Event Queue. If doing something on top of SimpleIPC it might be viable 
to consider Event Queue integration for Lazarus users, as well (but If 
you don't consider Lazarus this might be a completely unrelated issue).
