There are still some things I won't put in it myself (i.e. only on a piece of paper or on a flash drive in a safe), but I think the GPL-licensed KeePassX (vs the regular KeePass) + KeePassDroid + DropBox might cover you.


I have not used the Android one lately, but each time I open KeePassX under Linux (regularly) or under Windows (occasionally), I enter a password and pass it a key-file.  The key file path is pre-filled-in, so just type the master password.  If you don't have both, you can't get in there.

And if you need access to the list at the command-line, export it as text occasionally, encrypt it with gpg... (and shred the text file)
