[Force Guest Sign In] Does this just redirect when HTML is the output?

This discussion is related to the Force Guest Sign In addon.

Vanilla has many output formats other than HTML, such as RSS, AJAX and JSON. Redirecting to the login page (or any other HTML-based page) in the event that one of these formats is requested should not happen.

For example, an application wanting a list of users in JSON format is not going to make any sense of the HTML login page.

Is this how it works, and if not, are there any checks that can be put into place to return the appropriate page (e.g. for JSON it may just be an error message record).
