Space is a concern so I like the TO-92 package.

Could fit a couple TO-92 in the space of one TO-220 with its associated heatsink.

Run your themal stats, I remember a long time ago doing something questionable with a TO-92 transistor in a RF amp for a ham radio rig where the junction temp was only safe when the outside air temp was below 10C or something technically possible but not really very realistic.  Two TO-92 may end up taking up less space than one TO-92 with a big clip on heat sink.
