The man himself will set me straight if it is of interest to him
Based on this classic TimToady-esque If someone decides I'm ugly and beats my face to a pulp, and later I get a face transplant, am I still me? response, I'll bet 50p (assuming you live in the country implied by your name and therefore enjoy a bet) on Larry holding the view that Perl 6 is a rewrite of Perl 5. :)

    No. Despite my location, I'm not a betting man. But if I was, I'd confine my flutters to things with better odds of predictability that an American's use of English--pachinko, spread bets or snow on christmas day :)

    More seriously. To my mind a re-write implies writing, something that was already written, again.

    Perl 6 had (has?) never been written before, so it cannot be a rewrite.
