I think I found out why my *WSCST isn't working. It seems our particular model doesn't support PJL codes. So I'm looking at a PC5250 printer session.

Per this message from Scott..
The commands for stapling and hole punch are not standard, but you said you found the Canon codes.
Also per that message, some printer are picky about where they see the code. Thus Scott uses his own custom transform based upon IBM's TSPRWPR instead of using the built in HPT.
You might have better luck without writing your own transform if you define the PRTF as AFPDS and make use of the STRPAGGRP and ENDPAGGRP DDS keywords.

So I asked this question of Google all of yesterday with every search
string I could come up with. I finally managed to find this article
http://www.itjungle.com/fhg/fhg110508-story02.html) where the guy was
doing what I'm trying. The major difference being he was working with
a Xerox defined as a print device and I have a Canon defined as a
remote outq. Still, it was a start. I found the Canon codes and made a *WSCST.
Unfortunately, it still didn't work, and I'm not sure why.
FWIW, he's my PJL:
/* %-12345X@PJL */
/* @PJL COMMENT CANPJL PUNCH=LEFT */
/* @PJL COMMENT CANPJL SET STAPLE=TOPLEFT */
/* @PJL ENTER LANGUAGE=PCL */
