no, that's specific to gnu utilities and newer utils from other sources.
./-weird.name works with any utility. your initial one was the more
general solution as it will work on everything from v7 on up, and with
every app that wants a filename on the command line.
and the / dir should have a . dir. if not, just use /-weird.name.
