Joomla! is only approved for use on the STABLE software releases detailed in the Technical Requirements. PHP 6.0 is not a stable release of the language and is not therefore considered valid for testing Joomla! against. If you have need for it to be installed then I would suggest a separate development Web server with the specs that you want and you must accept that there are/will be limitations as to the Joomla! performance at this time.
