IMO the problem here is munin-node's cron entry, not cron itself.
I like cron and the way it logs stuf.

Your idea would require something like syslog-ng as default syslog
daemon with filters in place to move messages to separate logs which is
way more impacting to Ubuntu than changing the munin-node apt_all
