Who said you have to do that?  I fetchmail 3 servers, and procmail
acts on all of them interchangeably.

Ahh, so you can use POP3 with a gmail account then?  So what's the
benefit of using it over any other email address if you're pulling it
all down to the same place?

A nice touch is that you can configure gmail to 'archive' a copy as you download with pop so you can read/reply/delete with your favorite mail program and if you ever want to find something you've deleted locally you can use the gmail web interface to search/read the archived copies. It's not quite as nice as IMAP but still pretty nice.
