Wraps ERFA function eraUtcut1. The ERFA documentation is:

- - - - - - - - - -
 e r a U t c u t 1
- - - - - - - - - -

Time scale transformation:  Coordinated Universal Time, UTC, to
Universal Time, UT1.

   utc1,utc2  double   UTC as a 2-part quasi Julian Date (Notes 1-4)
   dut1       double   Delta UT1 = UT1-UTC in seconds (Note 5)

   ut11,ut12  double   UT1 as a 2-part Julian Date (Note 6)

Returned (function value):
              int      status: +1 = dubious year (Note 3)
                                0 = OK
                               -1 = unacceptable date


1) utc1+utc2 is quasi Julian Date (see Note 2), apportioned in any
   convenient way between the two arguments, for example where utc1
   is the Julian Day Number and utc2 is the fraction of a day.

2) JD cannot unambiguously represent UTC during a leap second unless
   special measures are taken.  The convention in the present
   function is that the JD day represents UTC days whether the
   length is 86399, 86400 or 86401 SI seconds.

3) The warning status "dubious year" flags UTCs that predate the
   introduction of the time scale or that are too far in the future
   to be trusted.  See eraDat for further details.

4) The function eraDtf2d converts from calendar date and time of
   day into 2-part Julian Date, and in the case of UTC implements
   the leap-second-ambiguity convention described above.

5) Delta UT1 can be obtained from tabulations provided by the
   International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service.
   It is the caller's responsibility to supply a dut1 argument
   containing the UT1-UTC value that matches the given UTC.

6) The returned ut11,ut12 are such that their sum is the UT1 Julian
