archetype create swallows exception information

      Description

      The DefaultPomManager.java contains:

      catch ( JDOMException exc )

      { throw new IOException( "Cannot parse the POM by JDOM" ); }

      all exc info is lost. My particular problem was that the archetype pom contained:

      #set( $symbol_dollar = '$' )
      #set( $symbol_lt = '<' )
      #set( $symbol_gt = '>' )

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

      and the space before the xml declaration was throwing the previous exception.

      I attach a very simple patch to make it easier to track these errors. It was generated with svn diff > jdom-error-message.txt against maven-archetype-2.0-alpha-4.
