In fact, Solr clustering plugin just needs a number of annotations from that
JAR to compile, and these didn't change, so 2.3.5 should do the job just

Good point! I've just made that change locally and it turns out that
"provided" is not transitive, so we'd need to add the dependency
to solr-clustering POM (instead of Carrot2's). I'm fine with either solution
(keeping SimpleXML in Carrot2 POM with the default scope or
in solr-clustering with provided scope), though I'm assuming the latter will
save the consumers one JAR in their classpaths. Just let me know which one
