That's what I meant. BPF is essentially a statically typed
language. KTAP is dynamically typed. It's a very different
model.

Yes they are both Turing complete and likely could 
be somehow translated into each other, but would
it be efficient and simple? No.

[essentially it's the "UNCOL problem" -- see
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UNCOL
One size doesn't fit all in immediate languages]
