Dear CBAers,

As we've come to suspect/learn over the last 15 years, the helium CVs 
have their own outbursts too, and with a morphology that might be very 
similar to their H-rich cousins.  But these stars are so few in number 
that a star's first well-observed outburst is pretty big news - and an 
excellent reason to pounce!
