No.  In fact, there isn't even any code to store the user's
information for future reference.  All it does is send the email then
forget about you.  I have written one implementation of this.  It
relies on a new table called "notify_me".  When you upload a new
inventory table through the admin ui, it sends out any notifications
as necessary.  It's not a perfect solution because of the dependance
on the upload function to trigger the notifications.  However, the
real question is "how do you plan to keep the inventory levels in IC

I'm not sure I actually have the code anymore.  I need to take a look
around and see if I can come up with a patch against a clean
'construct' demo.
