How about:
It is I who knocked on the door
It is me you are looking for.
But... above: misplaced preposition: Correct for is then:
It is for me you are looking.
After a preposition, the dative form is used.
This could be that the root of 'it is me', where an archaic construct is abbreviated:
'It is (given to) me (to be) who knocked on the door.
This, or similar constructs can be found in Latin and Gaelic.
