Following clarification of the axis attribute in CF-1.1 the following 2 checks need to be added to the CF Checker.

The Section 4 check has been implemented in revision [53].

Check added to chkAxisAttribute(). Error message output is

`ERROR (4): Axis attribute is not allowed for auxiliary coordinate variables.`

A test case has been added to the test file source:/cf-checker/trunk/test_files/

As this requirement was introduced at CF-1.1 an additional script option has been introduced to allow the user to specify which CF version they wish to check against. If no version is specified the checker will validate against the newest CF version.

For example: To run the script against against CF-1.0 -v 1.0
