Default PNP equivalent for 2n2222?

What is the PNP equivalent of the NPN 2222 transistor? I just want a general purpose PNP transistor.

I am accustomed to using the 2N2907 or 2N2907A as the complement to the 2N2222 or 2N2222A.

That would be my choice also. The plastic package is PN2907.

Ditto, the PN2222 is also the plastic version.
