[UDUNITS #JLQ-522131]: udunits2 and utScan, utIsTime

The UDUNITS-2 package is designed to be compatible with the 
original UDUNITS package at the  unit string level.  Therefore,
the UDUNITS-2 package should correctly parse every valid unit
specification that the UDUNITS package parses. This should 
include the CF conventions on unit strings.

The API-s of the two packages have some overlap but are really
different API-s (the UDUNITS-2 API is larger).  The UDUNITS-2
package is meant to replace the UDUNITS package.
