On my system, it gives the 'Load form type *STD into printer XXX' message
the first time I print to it.   I answer that message with a G, and it
does not ask again.

Not really.  I'm using a very similar set-up here, and I don't seem to
have the same problem.

Here's my config:

PI {
    env.DEVNAME = pi
    host = as400
    outputcommand = scs2ascii|lpr -Ppi

The only difference I see, aside from the name of the printer, is
that I'm telling it which message queue to send the messages to.
But, if I remove those entries, I still don't have any problems.

I've tried it with both version 0.16.5 and 0.17.1 (from CVS) and
both work flawlessly for me.
