Comment (by dcavins):

 I've gone through this patch again, switching the calls to
 `buddypress()->types` to use the member types fetching functions. I also
 changed some function names to be more descriptive and filled out the
 descriptions a bit more. There are two `@TODO`s marked that I'd especially
 like feedback on.
 • What's the best way to find all the users of a particular type? The code
 currently uses `get_objects_in_term()` but maybe doing a `BP_User_Query`
 would be better?
 • The general WP function `translate_user_role()` is used on the member
 type name at output, but I'm not sure it will have an effect.

 My note from above is still an open question:
 > The function users_type_change_to() relies on a passed parameter $which
 to know whether the control is above or below the table. This parameter
 wasn't passed to the action hook until WP 4.6, so in 4.5 and earlier, the
 upper dropdown's input never works (it has the same name as the lower, so
 it's overwritten in the $_REQUEST). Is there anything we can do to make
 this work in 4.5 and earlier? Short of a global variable, I'm not sure how
 to output the control only once in earlier versions.

 Thanks for your feedback!
