Well, polyparse may not support the Applicative class defined in  
Control.Applicative, but it _does_ have an applicative interface using  
other names for the same operators (namely, pure == return, (<*>) ==  
apply, (<*) == discard, (<|>) = onFail).

This function was discussed on the libraries list in the last year or  
so.  I think the consensus name for it was "void".  Of your 4  
alternatives, I quite like this one.
