No, the X100 engine is a separately developed track, which is only used 
for research purposes only.
The X100 developers so far have not been tempted to integrated the 
engine as a back-end for
the M5 software stack. The code base is far from being deployed 
out-of-the-box by others.

M5 shares the kernel with the M4 line, but has been significantly improved
in terms of language interpretation overhead and overall performance
due to much better optimization infrastructure.

The code for the Database Cracking is visible in the code being distributed,
but has not been turned on, pending further integration and quality

For this you have to contact Peter Boncz, the code owner.
