WX Hyi: superhump period

   Josch Hambsch has reported observations on four nights.
The superhump period has been determined to be 0.07762(2) d.
This is possibly the first determination of the superhump
period of this famous dwarf nova since Bailey (1979).
Since the object shows very frequent outbursts,
a search for negative superhumps may be interesting.
