Ok, as far as I get it this would be an option as well. Maybe I'll try it.  
Just one question:  Would this mean that I use nnmail-split-methods inside gnus 
in order to separate mails of different type (e.g. from different mailing 
lists), or would this mean that I configure maildrop to deliver it to different 
maildir mailboxes, and set up secondary select methods inside gnus?  To, me, 
the first one (nnmail-split-methods) makes more sense, but maybe there are 
arguments for the other solution as well?

The reason why I chose the other setup was mainly that I wanted to separate 
things.  I use both getmail and gnus for the first time, and I didn't want 
getmail to write to the directory where my mail is actually located.

Yes, they would be interesting.

But, what do you say to my present configuration?  Does it look reasonable at 
first glance?  In other words: Do you think I run into problems because I use 
an unusual setup, or because I made some mistakes when configuring things?

(I use emacs 22.2.1 and gnus v5.11 on a debian stable installation)
