Add dependencyManagement section to scijava POM

Maven allows the uses of a  dependencyManagement section to set the default version that will be used for a given dependency. This is cleaner than defining the preferred versions as properties like we do now. Update pom-scijava and its children to use inherited versions, where applicable.

At the same time, it would be good to start using the maven-enforcer-plugin to  check for dependency convergence.

Not urgent. We should review and decide once and for all whether to do this by the final 2.0.0 release (there are reasons not to use a dependencyManagement section, too).

While I was busy thinking about how urgent this task was not, dscho  did the work and the result is totally awesome! Child POMs are much more readable now, and less error-prone.
