Does unpublishing an app and then republishing make it new?

Quick question: I had to publish an app so I could test it and that was quite a while ago. I've finally sorted out the various issues and was wanting to be in the newly published charts. Does unpublishing the app and the republishing it make it new?

    you would need to unpublish the old one,
    then register a new app with a new app identifier. (Note: existing clients will not get an update)

    The original name may not be available for some time, even after unpublishing/removing it. So you may need to give it a new name, or add something extra to the name.

    Ergh, that's annoying. Noted for future projects.
