Transferring a repository to a user when that user already has explicit permissions to the repo will result in issues (BB-8230)

For example:

UserA has a repository (Repo1) they'd like to transfer to UserB. Prior to this point, UserB had explicit permission to this repository at When the repository transfer takes place from UserA -> UserB, the permission will remain. This effectively means that UserB is now both an owner, and has explicit permission to the repo. This also will cause UserB to have 1 less available user in their account.

The UI of the repo access page also won't show this, but the Manage Account screen for UserB will. would show that userb also has "Direct access" to repositories twice in that list.
