I'm a lame-arse about stuff like that. I use 2N3904 and 2N3906 for basically
everything unless there's some absolutely fundamental reason why not. It's
amazing what you can get away with. If you were *really* concerned you could
match them, but to be honest if you grab a few from the same bag you
probably won't notice.
Previously I used to use BC547/557 the same way. I don't even remember why I
swapped over. It might have been the pinout rather than anything more
