including files has almost no overhead on the server level. You can use APC encoder to save your self a lot of overhead and statically create php byte code if you are worried about that.
Also, having lots of files makes using source control much easier. One big file would be a mess. You would have to update the entire thing instead of the small changes.
As for searching, almost any editor (Textmate, text wrangler, dream weaver for mac) have a directory search. I am sure the same is true on windows / linux.

Watch out for that, it kill cats. :)
