Could this be used to connect a thunderbolt mac to a HP tape library with a 4Gb native FC interface (eg an LTO-4 Ultrium 1840)

Yes, I believe that this would indeed allow you to connect to a Fibre-Channel connected LTO tape library. You'd need the appropriate software, of course, but my understanding is that this presents Fibre-Channel devices to Macs just like an internal Fibre-Channel PCIe card would. Best to check with the manufacturer of the Fibre-Channel device to be sure, though.
