Sounds like gdaltindex is what you're after, but I thought I'd mention my attempts at creating a vector and raster metadata collection script. It recursively scans and interrogates almost all OGR and GDAL support formats and outputs XML. Not sure if it's beyond alpha quality yet, but in case anyone is interested:
Always interested in further improvements to this little python learning exercise. :)
