Applicative style has several contributors:
* AFAIK, Niklas Röjemo first came up with the names for the operators 
(as the haddock for Control.Applicative says)
* It was used heavily, popularised and expanded by (among others) 
Doaitse Swierstra
* Conor McBride and Ross Paterson recognised the pattern could be 
applied to things other than parsers

(Correct me if I'm wrong!)
