Well, I have never tried this myself, but I think that you could back up with Astro File Manager, remove the app from the market, and then restore the app in Astro. I think Astro uses sideloading to install apps when restored (so you have to enable that in (from home) settings->applications->allow third party installs. This does not include a market link.

(There is risk here: when you remove from the market, and if Astro does not restore for some reason, you'll only be able to install the latest version from the market. That said, I think that this is a reliable procedure.)

You do not need to be rooted for this, by the way.
