Using a single file per item has the advantage of shell completion, 
using version control, browse, move and rename the items in a file 
browser, edit them in a regular editor (that does GPG, or manually run 
GPG first), etc.

If you want an encrypted index then you take this away, and you 
introduce a dependency in the file system (on this index), so it seems 
like it would be better/easier to just move to a single (encrypted) 
database, but there are already alternative password managers that work 
like that.
