As far as I'm aware, there's currently no easy way to specify salts in
hex, except in some special cases (the XSHA format happens to be almost
right for your case - but see below).

This is non-specific: there's infinite number of different ways in which
a salt can be applied.  I've tried checking four obvious ones (prepend,
append, hex-decoded or not) and I am not getting a match for the
plaintext password you included above.
