Think of fill as a "spring" that pushes both sides. 2fill is a spring that 
pushes twice as hard. With a \vskip 1ex plus 2fill at top and \vskip 1ex 
plus 3fill at bottom, 2/5 th of the total blank space is on the top, and 
3/5 th is at the bottom.

With inbetween=\vfill, and two items, the equation changes to

2/6th of the empty space on top
1/6th of the empty space inbetween the two items
3/6th of the empty at the bottom
