not really great if you press a lot of strg + a (I know I can remap it,
but that's something I'd not prefer).

yeah, I am evaluating those groups now. They are a nice feature, I have
grouped my categories together now, but it would be cool if the screen
numbers within a group would start at 1, would make switching faster.

thanks for the hint, it now looks like this in my config-file: 

hardstatus alwayslastline
hardstatus string '%c %{+b}%h%{-b} (%n - %t) %w'
defscrollback 10000
sessionname default-wogri-servers

setenv SSH_AUTH_SOCK $HOME/.ssh-agent-screen.groups

zombie kr

screen -t //group
screen -t server0 0 ssh-agent -a $SSH_AUTH_SOCK -t 43200 $SHELL
screen -t server1 0 ssh address@hidden
screen -t server2 0 ssh address@hidden

screen -t otherservers //group
screen -t server3 0 ssh address@hidden
